Alert

Library Closed Monday, Feb. 15

All locations of The Seattle Public Library and the book drops at the Central Library will be closed on Presidents Day, Monday, Feb. 15.

 

Possible service interruption in online Library services Feb. 13 - 14

The Library will be performing maintenance on our network. While we are not expecting service interruptions during this period, there might be brief interruptions in online services. You will be able to search the Bibliocommons catalog, but may not be able to log in, place holds, renew items or use other catalog features. The former Library catalog (Horizon Information Portal) may experience outages as well. SPL Mobile, access to e-books, free music downloads and many databases and applications also may be affected.

The Seattle Public Library Foundation

The Seattle Public Library Foundation was established in 1980 by a group of far-sighted citizens who understood that a great Library wouldn’t be possible through public funding alone.

 

The Foundation has continued its original vision of generating private-sector support to supplement tax-based funding. The result has been improved collections, expanded programs, and enhanced services. But the credit for the Foundation’s impact belongs entirely to the people of Seattle. Over the years, thousands of generous individuals, corporations, and foundations have demonstrated their deep commitment to Seattle’s Libraries by donating to the Foundation.
