 View from the Northwest Room

"A rich mix, brought about by bringing together those who love books and ideas" - Moira Macdonald from her piece on Folio and its new location for the Seattle Times:  The new oasis of calm at Pike Place Market

Macdonald talks with our founder David Brewster about our history, landing at the Pike Place Market and our place within what Brewster calls Seattle's "Community of the Book".

Seattle Times:  The new oasis of calm at Pike Place Market

July 1, 2018

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.
