Folio: The Seattle Athenaeum, has made a new home in Pike Place Market. Located in spacious, light-filled rooms with stellar views of Elliott Bay, the library provides members a quiet space in which to peruse the collections, read in comfortable vintage chairs, study or work, or have private meetings. In addition to its mission in preserving book collections, Folio features programming for civic-minded and literary types of all stripes. Book discussion groups, literary salons, intimate music programs, author readings and discussions of pressing public-affairs topics enliven the library’s monthly calendar.
We invite you to explore our new location at Pike Place Market, at a grand opening celebration on Wednesday, July 18, from 4 - 7 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.
We are celebrating Valentine's Day with a special member happy hour from 5-7 on Tuesday the 14th:
