LIBRARIES: More hours coming soon

Announced today by King County Library System:

Beginning Sunday, February 27, the King County Library System (KCLS) will increase hours of operation by 18% systemwide. Hours of operation vary by location. Find updated hours on the library’s location pages with the KCLS location map.

Almost all libraries will add a service day to their schedules, including Sundays and Mondays. Thus, users will have access to a community library seven days a week in each region. Additionally, all KCLS libraries will be open later in the evening on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and earlier on other weekdays to serve as many King County residents as possible.

“KCLS is delighted to once again expand building services and hours of operation as we strive to return to pre-pandemic levels,” KCLS Executive Director Lisa Rosenblum said. “We will continue to meet the changing needs of our customers and increase access to building interiors when and where it is most needed. »

In accordance with state and public health mandates and guidelines during the coronavirus pandemic, KCLS has been operating at modified hours. KCLS has continued to serve King County communities in a variety of ways throughout the pandemic. The system moved quickly to add new contactless services such as external library lockers, Curbside to Go pickup and virtual programming in the early stages of the pandemic, while steadily expanding in-building services. All 50 libraries reopened to the public in July 2021.

For the white center library, says KCLS, that means two extra days a week – it will be open Sunday through Friday (hours TBD). For the Boulevard Park Libraryone day will be added – it will be open from Tuesday to Saturday.
