The High Point Branch of the Seattle Public Library will be hosting an Open House this Sunday, January 29, from 1 pm – 3 pm. The City Librarian, Marcellus Turner, will be there and deliver some brief remarks at 1:30 pm. There will be activities and snacks and tours of the reimagined spaces. The library is located at 3411 S.W. Raymond St.
The 7,200-square-foot High Point Branch opened in June 2004, thanks to the 1998 voter-approved “Libraries for All” bond measure that renewed and revitalized libraries across the city.
The library now has new carpet, a reconfigured holds area, added seating, power in seating areas and at tables and a reconfigured children’s area to provide a more welcoming space for families. Technology and sound quality in the meeting room are also improved.
