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”
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”
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.
