Here’s to Libraries, Week Five!

February 19, 2014

libraryHere is a picture of the graduate reading room of the Suzzalo Library @ the University of Washington (in Seattle).  This library was named for Henry Suzzallo, (the president of the University of Washington)  President Suzzalo stepped down in 1926, the same year as the completion of the first phase of the library’s construction.  The architectural style is collegiate gothic and was inspired by Suzzallo’s stated belief that universities should be cathedrals of learning.

“I spent three days a week for ten years educating myself in the public library, and it’s better than college.  People should educate themselves — you can get a complete education for no money.  At the end of ten years, I had read every book in the library, and I’d written a thousand stories.”  (Ray Bradbury)
