SummaryCome see the completed remodel of the Lake City Branch. Meet the City Librarian, enjoy local entertainment and refreshments, and see the dynamic new space.
DescriptionBrief program starts at 1 p.m. with Chief Librarian Marcellus Turner, Seattle City Councilwoman Debora Juarez and Seattle Public Library Foundation Executive Director Jonna Ward. Special story time and craft activities for children and refreshments. Everyone is welcome to join the celebration.

The branch was closed from May 7, 2018 until Jan. 2, 2019 for improvements that support the changing ways that patrons are using libraries and make the branch a more enjoyable space to read, study and collaborate.

The changes were designed to make it easier for people to interact with one another, create flexible, open, welcoming spaces and improve access to technology.

The renovation added about 1,600 square feet of public space to the branch by opening up the entrance and corridor and created flexible spaces for children, teens and adults. The public computers were moved to be closer to the service desk, and the addition of movable walls makes the meeting spaces in the branch more flexible. Patrons also will see more comfortable seating and more outlets to charge devices.
NotesLibrary events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not required.
