Seattle Library Is One for the Books

Tens of thousands of book lovers and architecture fans are expected to turn out Sunday for the grand opening of the new Seattle public library.

The 10-story glass-and-steel building was designed by Pritzker prize-winning architect Rem Koolhaas and his firm.

The unconventional building not only pushes the defnition of what a library looks like, it also expands the way a library functions.

Marcie Sillman of member station KUOW reports.
