Given the weather, I didn’t see much of Mount Rainier but I did get a good look at the amazing public library. We actually ended up not taking the architecture tour because I figured no architecture tour would give me enough time.

Wikipedia: a major section of the building is the “Books Spiral,” (designed to display the library’s nonfiction collection without breaking up the Dewey Decimal System classification onto different floors or sections). The collection spirals up through four stories on a continuous series of shelves. This allows patrons to peruse the entire collection without using stairs or traveling to a different part of the building.
