2013 Improvements at the Northeast Branch

We invite you to visit the improved Jodi Green and Mike Halperin Children's Area.


Improvements were based on branch usage, circulation and demographics, and trends in library services:

  • Larger children's area
  • Family-friendly seating
  • More filtered computers for children (coming later this year)
  • More self-service checkout stations (coming later this year)


The changes are part of City Librarian Marcellus Turner’s vision for The Seattle Public Library. One of his five service priorities is redesigning spaces in our libraries to better meet the changing needs and expectations of patrons.
