The Library's Website may experience brief outages

On Sunday, Dec. 11, from 4 a.m. to noon, the Library's website may experience brief intermittent outages due to scheduled server maintenance.

2013 Budget

On Nov. 19, 2012, the City Council approved Mayor Mike McGinn's proposed 2013 budget.

 

The Library's total 2013 operating budget is $63 million, $11.2 million more than the 2012 budget. The $3.4 million capital improvement budget, which is used for major maintenance and asset preservation, is $2.4 million more than in 2012.

 

These increases are largely due to enhanced funding from the $123 million, seven-year Library levy that Seattle voters approved in August 2012 to restore and improve core services.
