Sea-Tac Airport Library

Signs in the Southwest terminal

Imagine our surprise when the first thing my husband and I saw, as we arrived at the Seattle airport recently, was a huge sign (above) admonishing us to “Take Time and Read.” Not only does the King County Library encourage passengers to read, they also provide free books—and even rocking chairs!—for folks to use while they’re waiting for their flight. According to an article in, some 15,000 books are taken by Sea-Tac travelers a month. Obviously an excellent and well-used program—other libraries should take note!

Books, magazines and rocking chairs

Find a seat and read!
