The Seattle Public Library started as a single reading room in Pioneer Square. Today, it's a highly regarded Library system with 27 locations in the Greater Seattle region. All branches fully comply with the Disabilities Act, and we endeavor to reflect the diverse perspectives of our communities through our collections, service, and outreach.
The SPL is way more than just a place to borrow books. We have a vast array of learning media resources, including podcasts, movies and TV shows, music, and magazines; online resources; and programs and services for kids and families, teens, and adults.
We encourage you to visit your local branch and learn about all the free events and activities taking place every week. There are regular story times for kids, book groups in multiple languages, programs to learn technology skills, movie screenings, and much more.
