Enumclaw residents welcomed to King County Library System | Letter

The Enumclaw Library will join the King County Library System (KCLS) on  June 1, and KCLS is pleased to welcome all Enumclaw residents to the  KCLS network of 47 community libraries. We know you love your Enumclaw  Library, and hope you will be equally delighted as the newest member of KCLS.

We will do our best to ensure a smooth transition with minimal disruption to  your library services.

What does this mean for Enumclaw residents?

Through your beloved Enumclaw Library, you will have access to the entire  KCLS collection and library services. That means you can browse and place  holds on any of the four million items KCLS offers—all delivered to you at the  Enumclaw Library (or other KCLS library location of your choice). And you’re

always welcome to visit all branches of the KCLS network, which you can find at  www.kcls.org/locations/index.cfm.

As a KCLS library, the Enumclaw Library will offer a refreshed and expanded  selection of books, magazines, music, DVDs, learning kits, computer  workstations, computer classes, online resources, and programs tailored to the  needs and interests of Enumclaw residents of all ages, from infants to seniors  and everyone in between.

On June 1, the current hours at the library will continue to be in place, but  over the course of the summer, hours will be expanded to a total of 63 open  hours, including Fridays and Sundays. More details will be announced as dates  are finalized.

How will the transition happen?

Enumclaw Library’s collection will be expanded with new materials, new computers and workstations and wireless Internet access will be installed.  During the transition, we will do everything possible to continue to fill your hold requests and keep library operations as normal as possible. The Enumclaw

Library staff will be involved in the changeover, with support from KCLS staff as well, to complete the necessary changes as quickly and smoothly as we can. Though Enumclaw Library is now part of the King County Library System, it  remains a vital part of your community. Please come in, get your new KCLS

library card if you don’t yet have one, say hello to your Enumclaw Library staff  and meet a few new faces from the KCLS staff who will serve in Enumclaw.
