Changes to hold times and account suspensions on May 23 - Hold times and account suspension timelines were extended during the Library's Covid-19 systemwide reopening. Starting Monday, May 23, the Library will return the maximum hold time for items from 14 days to 7 days. Scheduled Library closures do not count toward the 7 day hold limit. The Library will also return to suspending accounts for items that remain overdue after 14 days. The Seattle Public Library offers fine-free borrowing. Suspended accounts are reactivated once items are returned.
Here are the best 2019 books from eight genres - Adrenaline, Fantasy, Historical Fiction, Horror, Mystery, Relationship Fiction (formerly Women's Fiction), Romance, and Science Fiction - as selected by the 12 librarians of the American Library Association's Reading List Council.
