I’m sorry to report that I have no photos of this library. I went with a friend and one does not embarrass one’s friends by taking nerdy library photos. Nevertheless, I hope this text is enough to encourage you to stop by the Historic Theaters Library at the Paramount Theater in downtown Seattle.
This tiny (one room) library is simply lovely. Even if you are like me and have minimal interest in historic theaters, the passion of the volunteers who run the library will spark your curiosity. You will suddenly, as if by magic, find yourself intrigued by historic blueprints and painstakingly collected photocopies of newspaper clippings detailing the whole history of the three Seattle Theater Group theaters. You might even find that you are lingering to hear stories about people and artifacts that you had previously taken entirely for granted.
