The Seattle Public Library wants to connect with you wherever life takes you.

 

  • Books on Bikes
    Our Books on Bikes program brings Library resources to you in a park, at a festival or wherever you are!
     
  • Open Air
    Open Air brings an outdoor reading room to locations across the city, making it even easier to use the Library’s resources and services you love.
     
  • Mobile Library Services
    Mobile Services provides access to library materials for patrons who are unable to use their local libraries because of age, disability or illness. Bookmobiles visit eligible, full time childcare centers, retirement homes, nursing homes and other facilities where there are residents who cannot access the Central or branch libraries.
