All Seattle Libraries Now Open on Sundays


No Comments (Leave Comment)

Thanks to Seattle voters who passed the Libraries for All levy last August, all Seattle neighborhood branch libraries will now be open on Sundays from 1-5 p.m.

Having libraries open on Sunday was the highest priority in the 33,000 public comments received during levy planning.

15 neighborhood libraries will be adding Sunday hours: Columbia, High Point, Madrona-Sally Goldmark, NewHolly, Fremont, South Park, Queen Anne, International District/Chinatown, University, Wallingford, Green Lake, Magnolia, Montlake, Northgate, and Delridge.

Celebrations will take place on Sundays from January through May at each of the libraries with new Sunday hours, beginning with the Columbia Branch on Sunday, January 6.

In addition, library users may now place up to 50 holds, up from 25 before. The Library also has new library cards designs with local icons, as shown here and in the image above.

The Library has a brief online survey through February 1 asking how you would like to use the library on Sundays, available here.

Keep in touch…
