The Seattle Cen­tral Library is the flag­ship li­brary of the Seattle Pub­lic Library sys­tem. The 11-story (185 feet or 56 me­ters high) glass and steel building in downtown Seat­tle, Washington was opened to the pub­lic on Sun­day, May 23, 2004.


The Se­at­tle Li­brary was cho­sen by TIME Ma­ga­zine as The Best Ar­chi­tec­ture for 2004 and was de­scri­bed by the New York Times as: “At a dark hour: Seattle’s new Cen­tral Li­brary is a bla­zing chan­de­lier to swing your dreams upon. If an Ame­ri­can city can erect a civic pro­ject as brave as this one, the sun hasn’t set on the West.” (May 16th 2004)
