Local libraries resume Sunday operations, starting today

January 6, 2013 at 6:07 am | In West Seattle books, West Seattle news | 4 Comments

As promised in the campaign for the library levy last year, its passage means Seattle Public Library branches closed on Sundays to save money can reopen on those days again – and as announced last month, today is the first open-again Sunday. From hereon out, Delridge, High Point, and South Park library branches will be open 1 pm-5 pm on Sundays. The library system says this is the first time in at least a century that all of its branches are open Sundays. Special Sunday celebrations are planned over the next few months, too (as listed here) – first one in this area will be at High Point next Sunday (January 13th).


  1. SPL is also offering new library cards, a choice of five different Seattle scenes and one with a children’s design. I got my Pike Place Market card yesterday! I understand this is a kind of Thank You to the community for passing the library levy.

  2. The cards are: Space Needle, the Central Library, Pike Place Market, Mt. Rainier, cartoony kids card and the “classic” blue Seattle Public Library card. Even though I think the retired red Q Card is the classic.

  4. Cecilia – Yes, as long as the branch has them in stock. Here is the link with the designs:


    I guess King Co Libraries have been doing this for awhile and SPL is catching up. It’s a simple but nice touch.
