The City of Spokane’s Main Library occupies a powerful and dynamic site connecting the dense urban fabric of downtown Spokane with a dramatic view of the Spokane River and Falls. The building’s prominent site and the importance of the library as a center of cultural life make this building a focal point for the City. The library is recognized for its integration of dynamic public spaces and carefully planned information technology. This library was designed by Hacker in collaboration with Northwest Architectural Company of Spokane.
