King County Library System

The King County Library System was the 2011 Library of the Year, and is currently the busiest library in the entire United States. In addition to its extensive collection of books, recorded books, videos, and electronic resources, KCLS also has a huge collection of databases which are free for you to use - if you have a KCLS library card.
