Revised Reciprocal Use Agreement between King County Library System and The Seattle Public Library
Effective June 1, 2015, Seattle residents have broader access to King County Library System print and electronic resources.
Seattle residents who register for a KCLS card may:
Place up to 10 physical items on hold
Check out up to 100 physical items
Place up to 10 holds on e-books and e-audiobooks
Check out up to 20 e-books and e-audiobooks
Return KCLS books to any location of The Seattle Public Library
Residents of the KCLS service area continue to have access to all services of The Seattle Public Library.
The boards of trustees from both library systems approved the new agreement after a year-long analysis on usage trends. The two library systems have had a reciprocal use agreement in place since 1979. The new agreement will be reviewed annually.
