This is an old library located in the U of Washington with a Gothic architecture. There are nice stained glass and carvings on the wall. When you are standing here, it feels that you are transported to Hogwarts in the Harry Potter movie.

What a gorgeous library, worth seeing but doesn't take much time to look at. Plan to visit either 1) in March when the cherry blossoms are blooming on campus or 2) when it's sunny, because the sun shining through the stained glass is wonderful.
