Beastie Adventures – Seattle Public Library

Do not panic, Tierney is not going to drop again from blogging. It’s just that I want to share this post about my visit last week to the AMAZING Seattle Public Library.

By the way, this is the tierneycreates Beastie guest blogging on this post. If you are new to   this blog you can read more about me on this post – I’m A Monster!!!.

As you saw in Tierney’s recent post, Solo Show Seattle Municipal Tower, Part III, she stopped at the downtown Seattle Public Library, known as the “Central Library” for a wander before her solo show opening.

Architecturally the library is amazing and here is a tour by the Seattle Public Library:

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know how Tierney and I feel about public libraries (they are magical places). The Central Library has 10 floors open to the public and an extensive catalogue.

Much to my disappointment Tierney did not let me ride the escalators alone (and she kept close tabs on me) but here are photos from our hour wandering about the Central Library.

Riding the Escalators!

(I think I would have been perfectly fine riding on the escalators alone but Tierney was so controlling!)

Searching for the Crafting Section

Browsing the Crafting Section

Tierney was focused on the quilting section, while I looked through the knitting books (as I was knitted and I like book about my origins).

Tierney discovered several books that she wants to put on hold at her new local greater Denver metro area library:

Yes, before you know it, she will likely continue her series of posts The Library Stack with her borrowings from her new library!

Cafe and Gift Shop

Yes, the Central Library has a cafe and gift shop which supports the library foundation!

We had a great time even if Tierney did not let me ride the escalators on my own and she did not let me try and use my library card to borrow any books (see reminded me this was not our library).

  1. I LOVE that library!!! I hope Real Tierney at least let you stroll the spiral book floors a little bit (it took me a while to figure them out, but once I did it was pretty neat). And I think you might want to check the conditions of that library card…I’m pretty sure it’s valid everywhere, right?

  2. While I always enjoy your photos, I need to ask you to be careful when near escalators. Selfie escalators incidents are on the rise, and we want you to be safe out there. When near an escalator, face in the direction of movement, place both hands on the side rails, and both feet on step. No strollers on it please. Distracted escalator users are the leading cause of spilled drinks in America.
