This facility is the flagship library of the Seattle Public Library system. It is an 11-story glass and steel building that opened in 2004 with over 362,000 square feet. It can hold over 1.45 million books, has an underground parking for 143 vehicles and has over 400 public computers. I was one of over 2 million visitors in 2014 to this very modern looking building. On the day I visited, the place was packed with people using every area of the building. I’ll have to post more photos of this facility later, because it is so unique….just totally different from anything you’ve probably ever seen.
