FOREWORD

It started with a simple question, in an email. What does the library


mean to you? The responses came in a pixelated flood, immediate and
impassioned. Joy poured unobstructed from every word, whether they
were few or many. What else in our modern existence could evoke this
kind of overwhelming, universal, wondrous feeling, across all ages and
lives and experience? It can only be the library. Its magic cannot be
diminished. As the world wrings its hands in worry about the future
of knowledge, we believe the library will not simply persevere. It will
thrive. Its implicit freedom, its acceptance of all people and ideas, its
tangibility and solidness in an ephemeral digital age, will endure. But
the library will also move and shift along with the shift of the greater
world. It will charge forward, in its unending quest for the expansion of
ideas. Because in the end, the library represents something bigger than
ourselves, something more powerful than can ever be truly expressed.
But we decided to give it a try.

The Library is an access hub to


the world and beyond, through
imagination and story.
Its where we get books
for our whole family
books that allow us to
creatively explore together with our children, or
to independently unwind
and immerse ourselves.
The Seattle Central Library is
my favorite lunchtime retreat.
Within a few blocks of
work, I get to pick out
new stories for my kids
while visiting one of the
most interesting buildings
in the world.

funding was
always being
cut when I was
growing up in
Scotland, meaning
libraries were
either shit or nonexistent.

As such, theyve
never really been
something Ive
thought about a
lot or considered
a resource. Ive
tended to either
just buy books or,
more recently,
download them.

So the Seattle
Public Library
(or any public
library for that
matter) represents
a massive missed
opportunity for me
to read, learn, and
explore more.

Libraries, to me, are an American birthright.


We see them in the beginning, with Thomas
Jefferson donating most of his books to the
Library of Congressto share all knowledge,
to be equal. Learning new perspectives, stories, and thoughts from the minds of others,
without judgment or censorship, is the original form of open-source knowledge. Something to build upon. An exchange.
In the 1973 dystopian film Soylent Green,
overpopulation and the depletion of the
Earths resources have left society in a state
where nothing from the past functions,
including the library. As people struggle to
survive each day, the libraries become a
refuge for the older citizens who regard
knowledge as valuable as food itself. These
knowledge keepers are even called books
by their unenlightened counterparts. They

22

WE ARE AN OPEN BOOK

are the last passionate recipients, the dying


carriers of the glorious human collective of
thought. They represent the devastating loss
of truth and knowledgemuch like the tragedy of the library of Alexandria.
The digital age, in which people have transitioned to the internet as a source of quick
knowledge, lacks this discernible truth we
all seek. Like anything, to separate hyperbole
from knowledge takes knowledge. And
perspective. It takes probing, questioning,
contemplation, and challenging the credibility of what is published. The web lacks the
appropriate guidance to knowledge or
enlightenment that a library implicitly offers.
There are attempts to make libraries more
attractive and visually appealing, rebuilding them architecturally to attract attention
from its patrons. Often, they seem to attract
HORNALL ANDERSON

23

folk who have less interest in the knowledge


libraries are built for and more in their public
nature. Many turn to the open accessibility
of the library as a rest haven. A retreat, to be
warm, to be out of the weather. And, perhaps,
to feel safe. To congregate within it, like huddling around a bonfire for warmth. To feel a
belonging to something bigger.
In spite of how people can so horribly judge
one another in this day and age, the library
in America is people-agnostic. It rises above
this unfortunate human trait. It is the mother to those in need. It takes in and comforts
many. It provides knowledge, safety and shelter. It is the home, or the memory of home,
we all yearn for when we need it most.
This is a library to me.

Jana Nishi Yuen

There are two places I go to get away from


my kids. One is the local coffee shop, and the
other is my neighborhood library. And when I
dont want to get away from the kids, its still
a great place to take them. Its a great place
to get lost, if you have the time. If Google
was a brick and mortar, it would be a library.

26

WE ARE AN OPEN BOOK

Claudia Cisero

The library has changed my life, and the


lives of my children. When my husband,
their father, passed away in May, I leaned
on the library to find appropriate books on
the topic of loss for my girls. They helped
me curate the list and get them to my local
branch. I checked them all out and selected
the ones I thought would be best for our
family. To me, the library is the world as
it should bemankind providing for one
another, for the betterment of all.
I

HORNALL ANDERSON

27

Christina Arbini

Im a staunch supporter of libraries, as an


avid reader, a fiction novelist, and a book
donor. The library is a virtual passport to
faraway places, a secret door to childhood
adventures, a vault of endless knowledge. A
place that brings together different types of
people from different backgrounds with one
shared passion: reading.

28

WE ARE AN OPEN BOOK

Shirley Hendrickson

As a child in a strict and conservative


household, the library was my way to
break free and explore the world, with its
vast complexity of people and ideas. Every
Saturday, my mother would take us and I
would take as many books as they would
allow me. By the next Saturday I would
have devoured them all, with their crinkly
cellophane covers and their smell, that
singular old-book smell that doesnt exist
anywhere else, like that of a new car, or
fresh snow.
In the confines of the library, I was given
the freedom to explore every subject and
discipline and fascination that came to
my head. From great white sharks and the
obliteration of Pompeii, to papier-mch
puppets and the lost art of napkin folding,
to secretly titillating teen novels and my
30

WE ARE AN OPEN BOOK

first forays into the classics. Whatever leaped


out from the shelf, whatever cover caught my
eye, it would go into my stack and my tiny
little arms. Books were my literal world.
The library was my great portal,
my imagination, my escape.

HORNALL ANDERSON

31

Caitlin Field

The library has always been one of my


favorite places. As a kid, I would check out
the maximum number of books possible
to bring with me everywhere. For the long
bus and car rides my family took, going to
and fro, from town to where we lived. For
the weekends. For reading before bed.
Our grumpy-yet-lovable librarian made
several calls to my parents throughout
my school years when she thought I was
reading material too mature for my age,
though my parents eventually informed
her that I was capable of choosing books
on my own (Gullivers Travels? One Flew
Over the Cuckoos Nest?). Eventually, I got a
special dispensation to check out as many
books as I wanted at once. At one point
my mother told me she was going to find
me a smaller backpack, worried Id give

myself scoliosis from hauling all of my library


treasures around. Naturally, I brought home
a book on scoliosis for her.
When I moved to Seattle three years ago,
I was fresh out of school and hadnt read
for recreation or self-driven interest in a
long time. My bank account was hopelessly
empty after moving and paying rent, so I got
a library card. I cant say enough about how
highly I think of the Seattle Public Library.
I entertained and bettered myself with the
help of its amazingly extensive book, movie
and music selection, not to mention their
partnerships with Seattle museums, events,
speakers, etc., etc., etc. The library (generally
speaking and specifically, SPL) is a place near
and dear to my heart.

HORNALL ANDERSON

33

Elliott Snyder

As a kid, I remember trying so hard to


memorize my address, in order to be
responsible enough to have my own
library card. The day I received it was one
of the greatest memories of my childhood.
I remember going home with an armful
of books, and spending the entire week
reading them all.
I remember the library as a place where
books came alive. I met my favorite
childhood author, Louis Sachar, when he
came to my local branch to do a reading of
my favorite book, Holes.

36

WE ARE AN OPEN BOOK

I remember taking drawing classes at the


library, something that helped solidify my
passion for art and design.
I remember sitting on the floor of the library
for hours, not even wanting to take the time
to get home before I started reading.
All of these moments, from many different
libraries, stand in my memory as simply the
library. They all bleed together, as a place of
wonder, and discovery.

HORNALL ANDERSON

37

Anya Miller-Berg

I come from a single parent home of four


kidswe didnt have a lot of money. Books
were things that were hard to own. The
library, miraculously to me at a young age,
made books easy to get my hands on. I
was allowed to check three out at a time,
and when I read them all, I loved going to
return them. The drop chute in the wall of
the library was like some kind of giant book
piggybank that I had extracted the riches
from.
I went to summer camps at the library. I
loved the furniture there, the reading tables
that felt as if they were made just for my
little-kid size (because they were). I loved
the way my library lookedthe architecture.
It was like a big hat. The whole experience
just imbued imagination.

38

WE ARE AN OPEN BOOK

Later on, in college, I remember nestling


into a circular study pod, finding my own
literal and figurative space in the library
and going deep into some subject I didnt
quite understand. I remember being amazed
that so much information was physically
contained somewhere. The organizational
system blew my mind.
I love, love, love the Seattle Central Library.
I love the importance placed on its design,
its architect, and its presence. It is really one
of the only amazing modern buildings in our
city. That says a lot. It says we need more.
It says that, because the library here is the
amazingly designed building that it is, we as a
city are the type of city that cares about what
it houses.

HORNALL ANDERSON

39

The circulation of the building is amazing.


Moving around that building does so many
things, again, literally and figuratively. It
takes you higher. The structure can actually
pull you out of your comfort zone. Its
perspectives change, and so do yours. The
detail in the exterior is outstandingthe
difficulty involved in lining up each discrete
lattice pattern. The exactness expresses a
sense of diligence. Of rightness.

I have great memories of the Magnolia


Public Library growing up. I will always
remember the distinct smell of the old
books, and the (what seemed like) 115-yearold librarian. She was the best. Id go there
after school to do homework, or to help my
grandma find her mystery novels. It was a
staple of my childhood.

WE ARE AN OPEN BOOK

Books, magazines, and


videos are the longstanding traditional ways
to access knowledge
through the library.
Fifteen or so years ago,
knowledge (and the
library) expanded to
include the internet. And
now, the Seattle Public

Library has extended


even further to include
lecture series (the
design lecture series
last year and early this
year was incredible), as
well as other talks and
events. I see the library
as an access point to all
knowledge.

My family are voracious users of our local library.


As a child, I went there for storytime. Throughout
my teen years, for research projects. As an adult,
for novels and pleasure reading. It became the
go-to place to take my own kids for an outing
when they were smallamazingly, with the same
storytime lady. It was there that they met their
elementary-school tutor. Its the place my elderly
mother frequents.
The library is a place of knowledge and
entertainment, a respite, and a community.

energy of a million books, just
waiting to be devoured.
