Public Library Action Network
The Seattle Public Library is a treasured community resource because it receives strong support from both public funding and private philanthropy.
Advocacy from The Seattle Public Library Foundation, Friends of The Seattle Public Library, and Library supporters like you has helped secure $568 million in public dollars during the past 20 years alone. This is accomplished through support for annual City-allocated funds, the Library Levy, and capital campaigns. The funding is critical to expand collections, provide technology upgrades, preserve and improve branches, and much more.
