Regular open hours at the Queen Anne Branch, 400 W. Garfield St., 206-386-4227, will resume Monday, June 18. Hours were temporarily reduced May 29 for the safety of staff and patrons while a leaking skylight above the public computer area was replaced.

Regular open hours are:

  • 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday and Tuesday
  • 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday
  • Closed Friday
  • 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday
  • 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday 

Ongoing construction will continue through the summer, which will affect onsite parking and ADA access. The branch’s two parking spaces will be unavailable. The ADA side entrance for wheelchairs, walkers and strollers will open at 4 p.m. weekdays and during regular branch hours on Saturday and Sunday. Branch staff have the option of opening the ADA entrance earlier on weekdays if there is no construction activity going on.

Several construction projects started in April to replace the skylight, rebuild the worn chimney, clean and repair the slate roof, and re-landscape areas affected by the construction. 

In late June through August there will be noisy exterior construction work such as jackhammering and limited access to the lawn during roof repair and landscaping.

All work is expected to be completed by the end of the summer.
