Rainier Beach Branch

Rainier Beach Branch and Book drop closed through 2015 for improvements

The building will be partially reroofed and the interior will be reconfigured to create flexible spaces for children, teens and adults in response to the needs of the community, branch usage, circulation, changes in technology and trends in library services.

The interior changes are part of City Librarian Marcellus Turner's vision for The Seattle Public Library. One of his five service priorities is "reimagined spaces" - creating new uses for spaces in our libraries to better meet the changing needs and expectations of patrons.

Holds will be sent to the Columbia Branch, 4721 Rainier Ave. S., unless patrons have selected an alternate pickup location.

Other nearby branches are:


Rainier Beach events will be held at other locations while this branch is closed.

See the calendar for all the details.
