Cell phone tours:
The Central Library now offers free self-guided cell phone tours! You control the pace, the content, and the order. Look for signs with this symbol posted in 19 locations throughout the Central Library and then call 206-686-8564*. Enter the item number followed by the # key on your telephone. Brochures detailing the tour stops are available at the welcome desks inside the library or here.
*please refrain from use of speakerphone. Standard cell phone company charges apply.
Groups of 10-20 must make arrangements for a tour at least two weeks in advance. These tours are offered at no charge. Please complete and submit a Group Tour Request Form. School, children's and youth groups (any K-12 grade age group) should NOT use this form; you should refer to the School Tour information below. Groups will be contacted when we receive the completed request form. Tours will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Be sure not to make arrangements or announcements or print materials for your group without a confirmed reservation from the Library's tour staff.
For further information, please contact the Central Tours office by email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 206-733-9609.
