Library Profile - Sno-Isle Libraries, Lynnwood Public Library

I thought it was about time I paid another visit to a library in the Sno-Isle system, having heard so many good things from all the wonderful people I've met who work there. So, today I visited the Lynnwood Public Library.

Like many of the libraries I have visited in Washington, public art is displayed outside. Here is this cute guy.

And this fantastic piece. 

I noticed upon entering that Sno-Isle has a 'Best Bets' book display of popular titles. A librarian from the Snohomish Public Library once told me that these were popular books that could not be placed on hold. This way, patrons could happen across a book they were looking for while inside the library. King County Library System has something similar called 'Choice Reads' and Everett Public Library has 'Quick Picks.' I love the idea and that the systems share the concept. 

The Lynnwood library is also home to one of Sno-Isle's Creative Tech Centers. This sectioned off area is used for technology programing and open public use. 

The children's area has a lovely aquarium and bright signage.

There is also a designated Teen area and a nice skylight. 

I liked selection of the books in the Friends Book Sale.

And check out the incredible amount of programing they have going on!

It was nice visiting you today!
