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!
