About the Lake City Branch

The current Lake City Branch was expanded and reopened Oct. 22, 2005. It is part of a municipal center that also includes a City of Seattle Customer Service Center, park and parking garage. The building has a grand entrance courtyard with bronze gates by renowned Seattle artist and sculptor George Tsutakawa.
