Seattle Central Library and Adult Story hour!

seattle library bldgYou’ve probably heard about, or even been inside, the amazing Seattle Central Library located on 4th Avenue at Spring Street.  But did you know they have a free adult story hour on the first and third Mondays of the month at noon?

A full contingency of Rebels took advantage of this free and fun event.  Taking the bus to Seattle we exited on 4th at Seneca, one block north of the Library.  Some of us bought a lunch along the way, while others of us had packed a lunch to eat during the story hour.

The librarian which read a Ray Bradbury sci-fi thriller was excellent.  He had all of us glued to the edge of our seats.  What a fun way to spend an hour!  seattle library.kids section

After the story, we were met by long-time library docent, Hollis Williams.  His knowledge and passion about this amazing building and library system was evident in our private tour.  He told us about the architectural as well as functional design of the library.  We visited many sections, including the Seattle collection, the cheerful children’s section, 10th floor viewing area, reading rooms, meetings room floor (which is painted BRIGHT red), and the delightful gift shop.

After our tour, we headed north on 4th Avenue enjoying the sights and sounds of bustling downtown.  We caught our bus for our return trip on 2nd Avenue, between Pine and Stewart Avenues.

Another grand adventure!
