Not only does Seattle boast one of the coolest public libraries in the country, but it is also home to the University of Washington's Suzzallo Library Reading room.
This gothic-style cathedral is one of my favorite places to write in the city. On a weekend, the room is devoid of all but the occasional tourist, coming in to take an instagram pic and leave. Fortunately talking is prohibited in this room, so you barely notice the tourist silently slinking in and out.
I go to Suzzallo every time I'm in Seattle, so I've photographed the reading room many times throughout the years. This remains to be one of the most beautiful libraries in the world and one of my favorite places to write.
