We’re currently seeing intermittent issues with patrons placing holds via the catalog. If you receive an error message when attempting to place a hold, contact us by chat , email, stopping by any branch, or calling 206-386-4636 and we’ll be happy to place the hold for you. Thank you for your patience while we work to resolve this issue.
We deliver on our mission to bring people, information and ideas together to enrich lives and build community through all of our programs and services. Staff members discuss some of the highlights of our work in the short videos on this page.
