The Seattle Central Public Library is very TALL inside. Looks to be about 60 feet from floor to top of steel and glass lattice facet. There's a small Fare Start cafe in the lobby. Ben, Noel and I warmed our hands around some cups of coffee after we salvaged life itself from cold concrete planters of former bank plaza being turned over into very narrow condominium highrise. New residents will have commanding views of the library, some office workers will lose theirs. I ate a spinach and cheese croissant, then a chocolate one as we watched the library shopkeeper roll out the modular store on tracks embedded in floor which he then covered with metal plates which fit snugly in the slots. It was clean, quiet, and warm.
