12th man to make some noise at Seattle's Central Library Saturday

Library patrons shouldn't be alarmed if they hear occasional screaming and shouting in Seattle's Central Library, 1000 Fourth Ave., this Saturday afternoon.


"You won't need to call security," said City Librarian Marcellus Turner, who acknowledged the Central Library Microsoft Auditorium "may get a little noisy" starting at about 1:35 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 11, when the Seahawks playoff game against the New Orleans Saints is televised.


Everyone is welcome to watch the game. There is no admission and seating is first come, first served. The auditorium opens at 1 p.m. and can accommodate about 275 people.


"The Library is a great place for information, education and recreation," Turner said. "We thought it would be fun to have the game on for our patrons, particularly those who don't have ready access to television. I'm sure there will be patrons working or studying in the building who also will appreciate the opportunity to take a break and watch part of the game."


He added that "no one will be shushed" for cheering.


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


For more information, call the Library at 206-386-4636.
