The Seattle Public Library wants to hear from you!

In 2019, Seattle voters overwhelmingly passed a levy to expand The Seattle Public Library’s hours and services, as well as ending overdue fines.

Now that all library locations are reopened (yay!), SPL is planning ahead for how to use levy-supported funds to expand hours and wants to hear from you. When do you want your neighborhood library to be open? What library services are important to your community? Let SPL know what you want by taking the brief survey. If you visit a branch library, you can also use a computer to take the survey or ask for a paper copy.

The survey is available in eight languages and is open until Monday, Nov. 8, 2021. If you have questions, call 206-386-4636 or contact SPL staff online.
