Seattle’s Central Library Will Once Again Host Live Broadcast of Seahawks NFL Playoff Game on Sunday


The library also held a game viewing event last week when the Seahawks beat the New Orleans Saints.

As points out, last week the library’s Microsoft Auditorium was 100% completely filled (275 seats) by game time.

“We really didn’t know what to expect,” said City Librarian Marcellus Turner, who watched the game with Library patrons in his Seahawks jersey. “But then again, we probably have one of the largest screens in town – 15 x 20 feet!” Turner said people started lining up in front of the auditorium about an hour before the game.


Turner said he received a lot of positive feedback from families, regular patrons as well as out of town visitors, who watched the game at the Library. “The first thing I was asked after the Seahawks victory, was whether or not we would be showing the NFC championship game,” he said. “I’m happy that we are able to do it.”

SPL’s web site adds:

The Library will get fans in the spirit by offering football-shaped cookies and free Seahawks promotional items (limited numbers). Library staff members will be wearing their Seahawks jerseys.
