The Denver Library is in the midst of it all on Broadway. Close to Civic Center Park and museums. It's worth a stop in to browse and wander. Certainly other cities have libraries with better architecture in Seattle, but it's a nice spot to wander...More

Don't miss making a visit here. There is much to see including valuable maps, displays and books, newspapers and magazines. The staff is dedicated to making this a real resource for the entire community. There is even a small cafe.
