Reason #6: Nancy Pearl. I know you're thinking, "Um. Who?" but you may know her, even if you don't realize it. Do you remember seeing a librarian action figure? Yeah. That one. That's Seattle's very own Nancy Pearl, who (in addition to being a fantastic librarian) has raised the bar for reading in Seattle with various book projects, clubs, and radio segments. She promotes "connecting to readers without the pretense" and is pretty much just generally awesome.
