The Seattle Public Library's classic catalog is now retired.
Classic Catalog Retired in January 2022
The Library’s classic catalog was retired on Friday, Jan. 7, 2022 due to the outdated and unsupported nature of the software that powered it. The software hadn’t been supported by its vendor since 2013 and could present security vulnerabilities if not retired.
Library patrons can use our more current feature-enhanced catalog to find and place holds on Library materials, browse librarian recommendations, track reading progress, and more.
