I've never seen a library quite like the Seattle Public Library, the architecture is amazing. It's definitely a must see.

“A Fun Space to Get Lost In”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

The architecture here is amazing. I mostly go to admire it, though there are over 10 stories of books, music, magazines, etc. Also, they have a collection of really old books on the very top floor that is fun to browse.

“Unique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

If you have kids (or even not), this place is really cool. Amazing architecture, cool floors (check out the red floor), and a lot of books.
