Mission Statement

The Seattle Public Library brings people, information and ideas together to enrich lives and build community.


We have been part of the Seattle community since shortly after the city’s founding. Since 1891, we have grown from a single reading room in Pioneer Square to a world-class Library system with 27 locations. Learn more about us, our contributions to the city, and how you can support our work. Go to: https://www.spl.org/about-us

I’ve been volunteering at FriendShop for a while now, and I love it. Super friendly staff, they are wonderful people. Supportive and respectful.
