Meet Emily Alvarado, Director of the Seattle Office of Housing. The Office of Housing works with community partners, private developers, and public funders to build affordable housing so people of all incomes can live in our city. Emily will cover rental housing and assistance, low-income homeowner programs and other resources for low-income households with specific emphasis on the impacts of COVID-19.

Civic Coffee Hours bring community elders closer to local government officials to explore topics of interest. Learn how decisions are made, how to get involved, and how to take advantage of programs and services. Closed captioning is provided in Arabic, Chinese, English, Korean, Russian, Spanish and Vietnamese.

Presented in partnership with Age Friendly Seattle – Seattle Human Services.

We can provide accommodations for people with disabilities at Library events. Please contact leap@spl.org at least seven days before the event to request accommodations. Captions are available for all recorded Library programs.

Car Seat Details
Donated seats MUST meet the following requirements:

For Infant Car Seats: Donated items must be at least 6 months from the expiration date. Expiration dates are typically 6 years after the manufacture date. This date is often located on either side or under the car seat on a sticker.

For Convertible/Combination/ Booster Car Seats: Donated items must be at least 1 year from the expiration date. Expiration dates are typically 6 years after the manufacture date. This date is often located on either side or under the car seat on a sticker.

Have not been in an accident. You will be asked to sign a waiver stating that this car seat has not been involved in a vehicle accident.

Have not been washed with harsh chemicals, like bleach. Although we love to receive clean items, bleaching the straps impacts the webbing, as it easily frays, allowing children to come out of the seat in a crash.

In addition, whenever possible, please visit the Consumer Product Safety Commission at www.cpsc.gov to quickly review whether your seat has been recalled. You may be surprised. Many issues can be addressed by ordering a part (usually free of charge from the manufacturer). This individual effort on your part allows us to move items safely and quickly.
