Gilbert Anderson, Library Foundation board member and supporter, talks with former Seattle City Librarian Deborah Jacobs about his relationship with the library (dating back to the 1930s) and their work to raise funds for and design the Central Library and the rebuilding and renovation of all 26 branches.
The Library is for everyone, and we want to hear everyone’s voice. So tell us and celebrate the role of the library in Seattle’s past and future by sharing one word, a story, or a meaningful photo that describes what the Library means to you and why.
