The University of Washington’s Suzzallo Library – A Cathedral for Books

Scenes from the reading room at the Suzzallo Library on Seattle’s historic campus.

The Suzzallo has been called a “cathedral for books”. There are only a select few places I might wish my ashes to be spread, the Preikestolen in Norway, Slide Rapid on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River, the west face of Mt. Reynolds in Glacier National Park.. The Suzzallo Library is one of those places, provided the act could be performed quietly. Shhhhh.
