    Cool! I've never seen a Public Library like this. I enjoyed the modern architecture & interior design. I like how the floors spirals up. There's also a cafe in where you can get coffee/drinks & food.

    Go all the way to the 10th floor to view from the top. Also take the 8th floor and walk down the spiral.

    Always a great spot to chill for a couple hours. I usually go to the tenth floor to study, or binge watch tv shows. Then when you're tired of screens, take the stairs and check oit the unique floors.

    This is the biggest public library I have ever seen. 13-floor modern well-designed architecture. The tenth floor has a viewing deck, too. Do not expect a majestic city view though.

    There's a whole section up on the top floor dedicated to Seattle history. Looking at some old yearbooks from the previous century was really interesting!

    Best place to get tax returns done for free. Look for the free tax help on the 5th floor.

    There is a free self-guided cell phone tour throughout the library. Fun fact: the public art outside the meeting rooms on the 4th floor is excerpts from Robert's Rulesand of Order.

    Architecture of the building and the ambiance inside are a bit too abstract and futuristic to be soothing. It's one of Seattle's notable landmarks, so is worth checking out.

    If you're looking for a book from the aviation room, go to the 10th floor to order it. The book can be used just in library. And the room is closed on Friday.

    Great architecture. Good place to hangout, study, and take a break from the downtown Seattle hustle and bustle with the quiet atmosphere.

    Ethernet plugs (for those who don't have a WI-Fi capable device or who need more security) on a few floors are available to connect to the Internet. this one is located on the 8th floor.

    From the 10th floor, walk past the elevators and around the corner. Watch the movie projected to the side of the lower floors as you look down to the 2nd floor stacks. This place is a treasure trove.

    The children's book section is something like 20 times the size of our local branch's and was great to explore.

    Designed by Rem Koolhas. It is worthy of all the hype and locals are rightfully proud to live in a place where such projects actually happen. Bill Gates chipped in $20 million for this too.

    Marvel at this Rem Koolhaas-designed public library, from its airy and bright steel and glass structure to its towering non-fiction book spiral and vibrant magenta and lime children's reading room.

    The hub of Seattle's 25-branch library system, the Central Library, is a stunning jewel of a building that stands out against the concrete jungle of Downtown.

    Each "side" of the building utilized a different type of glass. Compare at the angles & you will see the differences, intended to highlight various views of the city, rain & sky.

    One of the most awesome buildings in Seattle. Walk up the giant ramps, go down the neon elevator and walk through the confusingly geometric hallway.

    We dare you to schedule an architectural or general tour at the Seattle Public Library and then search for your family surname in the Genealogy Collection.

    Stand at the corner of 5th and Spring, across from the library, to capture the entire building. A reflection of the sunset on the building is possible from late spring to early summer.

    シアトル中央図書館:レム・コールハース(2004)。地上11階、地下に駐車場も備える公共図書館。不規則な建物の形状は、書架、閲覧室、ホールなどの図書館に必要な機能を縦に積み上げ、ずらしたため。この計算されたズレにより、吹き抜けや広々とした閲覧スペースを作り出している。

    If you are on a Mac or iPad and are having trouble connecting to wi-fi, try turning off your wi-fi, restarting, then turning wi-fi back on. Not guaranteed, but worked for me.

    From the upper floors, you get a great bird's eye view of practically the entire city. In fact, the view's so great, you see things you shouldn't. Like that time we saw a couple boning on a rooftop.

    Take Link light rail to get here. Exit at the 3rd & Seneca end of University Street Station, then go 1 block uphill east on Seneca, then 1 block south on 4th, and you're at the library's front door!
