The Bothell Library closed Monday for a roofing project and will reopen on Sept. 27.

The project will replace portions of the roof and six heating, ventilation and air conditioning units. Holds, pick-ups and returns will still be available at the side entrance of the building during regular hours.

Library programs and events that take place during the closure have been rescheduled or canceled. For more information on these programs and the closure, visit the Bothell Library events page at

Maria Hatcher, the assistant director of the King County Library System, recommends the Kenmore, Kingsgate and Kirkland libraries as nearby alternatives for readers.

“Patrons are always welcome to use any other branch that is most convenient for them,” Hatcher said.
