Another library option is the [http://www.kcls.org King County Library System]. Seattle is in King County, so it's not initially clear why there are two entirely different library systems, but this is because the Seattle Public Library is funded through the City of Seattle and was founded in the 1800s, while the King County Library System is funded as an independent taxing district and was founded in the 1940s. The City of Seattle would not fund library service outside the city limits, while by the time the King County Library System was founded, the Seattle Public Library was already in existance. The KCLS [http://www.kcls.org/kcls/liblist.cfm locations] are not in Seattle proper. However, it's often worth it when you're looking for a hard-to-find book to check out their system as well--they seem to have more of a selection in many areas. [http://www.kcls.org/cataloghelp/faq.cfm#holds Holds] can be picked up from any KCLS location.

KCLS generally has all the amenities of SPL--except for the beautiful Central Library.
