Starting next week, the Ballard library will be start offering curbside service.
Seattle Public Libraries will start offering limited curbside at the Central Library tomorrow (Aug. 6), and are expanding to more branches, including Ballard, in the coming weeks. A representative from SPL tells My Ballard that the Ballard branch will begin curbside service next Thursday, Aug. 13.
The curbside service will remain limited: SPL is only allowing pickup of currently held items. No new holds will be allowed quite yet; just those that were filled pre-shutdown will be available for patrons. They’ll also be offering “grab-and-go” bags of three uncatalogued books.
Curbside service at the Ballard branch will be available Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 12pm to 6pm.
