Ballard Library Branch
5614 22nd Avenue NW
Seattle, WA 98107
The Ballard branch is one of the most heavily used libraries in the city and was recently refurbished to give it a nice fresh carpet and new tables with better seating. Two interesting things about the building are that it features a 'green roof' planted with over 18,000 low-water-use plants, and there's a periscope inside the branch that lets you view both the roof and the surrounding neighborhood. Wow!
