We heard the library was great, so we made a point to check out it. The architecture is really cool. If you're interested in that sort of thing, this is definitely worth a visit!

This is an impressive building to visit given the scale of the place. I have never been in so large a library with such huge open spaces and vistas. Climb to the top of the building for some nicely framed views of the city and then descend via the book ramp. There is a small shop and cafe for those who want to spend a little more time here.

Ideally, I wish there was a second library or even a section of library that felt like a castle and/or study, but this is a good library and it's interesting. I love the top floor.

Huge library with interesting architecture. They have story time for kids on certain days and a massive collection of reference books.

Love the Seattle Public Library primarily because it is HUGE. Nearly 10 floors of space and a lot of books and areas to study and get work done. As Downtown Seattle is walkable, you can get here very easily.

The largest public library in Seattle is 10 stories tall and holds nearly 1.45 million books. The Central Location is a resource for anyone and everyone to learn. They have a wide variety of events like author readings, artistic presentations and useful resources like tax help, voter registration, adult tutoring, resume building and more.

I like the odd, angular design of the building and the floors each have their own character, color and design. In the event you get lost or need to look for something specific, their many catalog computers and friendly guides are always a few steps away.
There are treasures everywhere in the library so make sure to explore every floor. The top floor features archives of old maps and documents important to Seattle.

Who rated this place less than five stars? Do they hate reading, or awesome architecture? This place is a book lover's paradise, even if the floor layout is a bit labyrinthine. I could spend hours simply strolling through the floors, many of which flow together with ramps, and browsing the books while still admiring the views of downtown and the cool twists of the architecture. It's a great place for locals and tourists alike. The views are nice, but don't provide a lookout. I prefer going to the top just to look down and the bottom floor several stories below. Seattle is an extremely literate city, and this is its ode to the magic of books and the importance of libraries.

I've never actually been inside this library. You really don't need to go inside the building to appreciate the amazing architecture of it. Granted, I'm sure it's even more beautiful on the inside.

Amazing modern building, each floor has it's own charming air. They have good books and movies. Free wifi.
People with a library card can rent computers.

For tourists you can ask for a self-guided tour. The only thing that I didn't like is that sometimes you can find homeless people, and they won't harm you at all (but it's something you wouldn't expect)

They also have monthly free activities: concerts, book launches, movies, book reading, classes, etc.

In 2007, the building was voted #108 on the American Institute of Architects' list of Americans' 150 favorite structures in the US!

This is one of the coolest libraries I've ever seen. Take the elevator to the top floor and make your way down! You don't have to take an escalator or elevator to do so, as the floors go slightly downhill. It is gigantic!

This library has multiple levels of books, media, and reading areas. Cafe is also available inside. Located conveniently in downtown with easy access by walking, bus, or car. Pictured: escalators up in the center of the library.

When you visit a library designed by a European architect with the coolest name ever, Rem Koolhaus, you expect something out of the ordinary and the SPL delivers that. However, the elements of the red glass walls do give it a rather spooky horror film vibe in places and I have heard multiple complaints about the poor sound quality - though really what sound should you need to hear in what is supposed to be a temple of quiet?

If you want to visit a library in Seattle, it should be Seattle Public Library's downtown Seattle location. This is the flagship and crowning jewel of the library system.

It is a 11 story building made of glass and steel. The buildings looks nothing like any of the buildings it neighbors. It is a dome like structure that seems like the design came from outer space.

The interior of the library is futuristic and artful. There is a visual art display as you head up the escalator. And the 4th floor is quite interesting for its dark mood lighting. The futuristic architecture of this library is unorthodox for sure, but this library is truly a great one on the merits of its collection which is in my opinion the best in Seattle. This library succeeds in combining art and substance well together.

Like a giant spaceship full of books. You can spend an hour just wandering the hallways and exploring, and then the rest of the day reading books and sipping coffee from the cafe downstairs.

The design is so futuristic it is crazy. Very beautiful on the inside and outside a must see. Good looking at different angles and puts other newer libraries to shame.

This is a fascinating place to spend part of your day, especially if you are a fan of Architecture. I also really enjoyed looking through their collection of sheet music. There is something wonderful about acutally holding paper in your hands and reading words, notes or seeing pitcures.
