Why I heart the Seattle Public Library

I love books. I love free books even more.

I am so fortunate to live in Seattle, as there is so much cool stuff to see (and photograph) like Pike Place Market, Alki Beach, Gasworks Park, the Freemont Troll, etc.

But there is one place that has my heart, and it often gets overlooked. The Central Library!

The Central branch of our library system is in a relatively new building. Unlike most of the modern architecture in the city (cough EMPSFM cough) it is both lovely and functional.

On a rainy Sunday afternoon I decided to take a trip downtown and stock up on some books, and also to take some photos with the mustache and my new holga camera. The ones in this post were all from my powershot... but you get the idea.

Libraries, are in my opinion, one of the best places on earth!

Wow! I'm a library geek, so I love to visit libraries. I am going to Seattle next month, and the library is one of the stops I'll be making. Thanks for the sneak peek!
