Federal Way 320th Library to reopen to public April 7

The King County Library System reopens five library locations across the county this week.

Several King County libraries are reopening to the public in early April, including a Federal Way location.

The King County Library System is reopening five locations to the public at reduced capacity with adjusted in-building services, bringing the total to 11 reopened libraries across the county.

Snoqualmie Library reopens Tuesday, April 6, followed by the Enumclaw, Federal Way 320th and Woodinville libraries reopening for in-building services Wednesday, April 7.

In-building services allow visitors to get socially-distanced assistance from staff inside the facilities, browse various collections, access wifi, and use computers, copiers or printers.

Some reopened libraries will provide both in-person and hybrid services, however the Federal Way 320th location is no longer offering curbside pickup.

Visitors are welcome on a first-come, first-served basis to operate between 25-50% capacity. Masks are required and libraries hour are limited in order to allow for cleaning times.

“It has been wonderful to see patrons inside our libraries once again,” said KCLS Executive Director Lisa Rosenblum. “We hope you enjoy reconnecting with staff and services, and we thank you for your patience as we work to reopen more locations.”

The Federal Way 320th Library (848 South 320th Street) will be open from 1-8 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.

Entry into the library will be permitted at every other hour, followed by an hour of cleaning. As of April 6, the Federal Way Library located on 1st Way South is operating with curbside pickup only.
