Washington Center for the Book

What is Washington Center for the Book?

The Washington Center for the Book at The Seattle Public Library is devoted to celebrating the written word and to encouraging the exchange of ideas evoked by literature and the humanities.

 

Through book discussions and other literary and humanities programs, the Center strives to broaden and deepen appreciation for literature that expands the world of the reader. The Center develops programs that appeal to a wide audience - from confirmed book lovers to those who may not yet consider books and reading basic to their lives - and works with other cultural organizations and libraries to realize its goals.

 

Established in 1989, it is one of 50 state affiliates of the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress.
