7,000 Metaphysical books and Media -- open to the public
First established in the late 1920s, the Seattle Theosophical Library has nearly 7,000 books, periodicals and media dealing with Theosophy, mysticism, esotericism, comparative religion, philosophy and related subjects.
The library has become a center for the exploration and study of Theosophy, healing, meditation, astrology, psychology and spirituality. It is a rich source of inspiration for artists, students and thinkers interested in the process of inner development.
The library also hosts a bound collection of The Theosophist journal dating back to 1885, as well as other early theosophical periodicals and rare texts.
Our collection is listed online (see the Search links above), and a public computer is available for web research.
