    SEATTLE - People normally think of a library as quiet, but on Saturday part of the Seattle Central Library will be loud as Seahawks fans cheer on the team.

    "We are not going to shush tomorrow," city librarian Marcellus Turner said.

    They are welcoming in fans to watch the game on the big screen in the library's auditorium.

    They'll be handing out signs and buttons, and even be announcing the score on the PA system.

    People will be allowed into the auditorium at 1 p.m. to take one of the 275 seats.

    "I don't know how I'd appreciate scores being announced, but keeping in the spirit, hey, we're in the playoffs, it's fun," Craig Kreuter said.

    "I think it's going to be super loud in here tomorrow," Michael Cross said. "I look forward to it."
