Seattle Public Library is the flagship building of the city's public library system. The 11-story glass-and-steel structure can hold about 1.45 million books, making it a must-see for literature fans and architecture enthusiasts alike. Take a self-guided tour to explore the award-winning construction. Don't miss the books spiral, a continuous series of shelves reaching four stories high. The 400 computers are a great resource. Bring a book up to the Betty Jane Narver reading room to relax with superb views of Elliott Bay. Planning Seattle trip won't be overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.
Seattle Public Library reviews

It was great to have a place to escape to in the middle of a busy day of sightseeing downtown Seattle. The design of the building is very unique, and we went up to the top floor for the views. We also stopped by the rare book collection and the amazing librarian allowed us to read an illustrated copy of The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe from the 1800's!
Great place to find some unique stuff. I like their the calm atmosphere here. They displayed the book in good manner. We can find great stuff to read because of the amazing collection. Perfect place for book lovers.
