Seattle Public Library

The Seattle Public Library is a premier institution in Washington State. It has an extensive collection of books, recorded books, videos, and electronic resources, as well as a large collection of databases which are free for you to use - if you have a SPL library card. Seattle Public Library also hosts fantastic performances and author readings (some of which are featured on their homepage) and an annual event called Seattle Reads, a model for similar programs all over the United States. 

What if I don't live in Seattle?

If you attend or work at Highline Community College you have free access to the Seattle Public Library - even if you're an online student who lives far away.
