“Beautiful Building”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

We went to the Seattle Public Library because my husband is an architect and wanted to see it. It's a beautiful building and definitely worth seeing from inside and outside. It was also great to see so many people enjoying a public library - this seems to be more and more rare these days.

“Seattle's epic library”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

The library is easy to locate, especially given its architecture. Functionally speaking, it does not flow well - but when exploring for fun on vacation, this is enjoyable.

Sculptor Henry Moore has one work in Seattle--at the Public Library. Worth the trip if you are Moore fans.
