Level 3: Living Room
Visitors entering from 5th Avenue are greeted by the registration, information and checkout desks. A gift shop, coffee cart and seating for 20 are to the left. The fiction collection, print collection, video collection and Northwest authors collection are on this floor. Along the west side of the room is the Teen Center, where teens can listen to music under domes that project sound only to the listener. Visitors standing near the planters at the base of the atrium can see up to the fifth floor. Take a virtual tour
Experience the Living Room through a 360-degree interactive view.
