Libraries | Family Workshop

Saturday, August 10, 2024 | 10:00AM – 12:00PM | Tickets


Libraries are so much more than books! In addition to bookshelves, many libraries offer spaces for storytime, lectures, quiet reading and more. Here in Seattle and around the world, we can see many examples of libraries that are not only functional, but also beautiful. What would you include in your library? What would it look like from the street? Join us to design your own!

Designed with younger children in mind (ages 5-12 with a chaperone), our family workshops encourage children and their caregivers to explore architecture through hands-on activities. Workshops begin with an exploration of exciting examples of architecture and activities that highlight the design process. Then, the kids are off—designing and building their own structures in a whirlwind two-hour workshop that culminates in a group presentation.

No-questions-asked scholarships are available for all of our Youth and Family programs. Email to inquire.
