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 reduce 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.
