Seattle Guides

-- PDF version --

Welcome to Seattle, the pearl of the Pacific! Nestled on the shores of Puget Sound and surrounded by snowy peaks, Seattle provides both a spectacular natural setting and a cosmopolitan lifestyle. We are a city that offers a variety of activities for any visiting librarian – outstanding book stores; architecturally-stunning libraries; cozy coffee shops; miles of walking/bike trails; and the famous Pike Place Market, the best fresh fish and produce market in the Northwest. On behalf of the Hospitality Committee (Bridget Dacres, Lori Fossum, Brenna Louzin, Scott Matheson & Tim Sheehy) we welcome you to our home town.

On these pages you will find listings for many of the attractions in Seattle and the surrounding region. From a giant Ferris wheel on the waterfront to world class art museums, you will find numerous attractions to fill your free time. In addition, we will provide you with practical advice for city transportation, shopping venues and local services. Check back often to see the information as it becomes available!

To start your planning, here are two guides to Seattle that might provide you with some ideas about what to see and do in Seattle:
