Book Spiral – Seattle Central Library
Image by brewbooks
"The Books Spiral is four floors of book stacks, connected by gentle ramps. The majority of the nonfiction collection — 75 percent of the entire collection — is located on the Books Spiral. This lets the nonfiction collection exist in one continuous run, and avoids the problem of having to move books into other rooms or floors as the collection expands. ….
floor mats throughout the Books Spiral are labeled with Dewey Decimal System numbers to help people find the items on each floor."
