Seattle Public Library users: Take a survey about SPL hours, services

The library wants your opinion. An easy, online survey is available through Nov. 8

Seattle Public Library wants to hear from families about what library hours and services are important to them.

After closing buildings and getting creative with curbside services during the pandemic, Seattle Public Library has fully reopened all 27 locations. Reopening of the NewHolly Branch on Oct. 13 was cause for celebration.

Now SPL is strategizing about expanding hours and services using money approved by voters in 2019. Getting rid of fines for overdue materials also was made possible by this levy.

The survey is easy to take (and available in eight languages) online here. Also, visitors to library branches can use computer there to take the survey or use a paper copy of it.

The survey will be available through Monday, Nov. 8.

In the meantime, here is the latest on library services and COVID precautions.
