Library News Release

Release Date: 05/09/2013

Temporary parking restrictions at Southwest Branch of The Seattle Public Library May 20-28

The Seattle Public Library

Updated 5/24/2013


Update: Due to difficulties removing the concrete, construction work is now expected to be completed by Friday, May 31.


Beginning Monday, May 20, parking stalls at the north end of the Southwest Branch parking lot and the entrance from 35th Avenue Southwest will be fenced off and unavailable for several days while improvements are made to the parking lot.


Patrons can still enter the parking lot from Southwest Henderson Street during construction. Work is expected to be completed by Tuesday, May 28.


The Library is improving the parking lot to make it easier for patrons to use. Construction work will involve widening the parking lot and the 35th Avenue Southwest entrance, and moving the bike rack closer to the entrance.


These improvements are funded by the Library levy that voters approved in 2012.
