AT THE LIBRARIES: ‘Peak Picks’ program goes system-wide today

The Seattle Public Library says it’s going system-wide as of today with the Peak Picks program, which it’s been testing at eight locations (none in West Seattle). This is meant to increase availability of in-demand titles (bestsellers and more) – no holds, no renewals after the two-week checkout period, first-come first-served. If you don’t already know, West Seattle’s library branches are in Admiral (2306 42nd SW), Delridge (5423 Delridge Way SW), High Point (3411 SW Raymond), and Westwood (the Southwest branch at 9010 35th SW).

      Sorry to omit (we have library programs in our calendar highlights almost every day so I should know better), fixing! Thanks!

    Hmmmm…..I actually checked out a couple of books last week, on Wednesday, from a “Peak Picks”-marked shelf at Admiral branch!

    Would love to see this with ebooks too. Was so disappointed when I got an ereader excited to use the library more only to find out ebook copies are just as limited with long waits like paper books.

    Got Peak Picks 2 week ago from Admiral. Love this program!

    I also love this program–just happened on it, but was thrilled to get a recent best seller that was so good that the 2-week limit was no problem whatsoever.  –raced through it in 2 days.

Sorry, comment time is over.
