Washington State University Libraries: Libraries for the 21st Century

A new report from the Seattle-based nonprofit organization Libraries for a Sustainable Future highlights the many libraries in the Puget Sound region that are serving as a catalyst for change.

The Seattle-area libraries, including those in Bellevue, Redmond, Bellevue and Kirkland, were selected for inclusion in the report due to their diverse and dynamic populations, the nonprofit said in a press release.

Libraries for a Safer Future was founded in 2010 to help communities better serve the needs of underserved communities.

They are a partnership of the Seattle Community Foundation and the Northwest Public Library System.

LSF’s mission is to increase access to knowledge and to foster a positive and productive relationship between communities and the public sector, according to the organization.

“We are working to change the way we think about how we use and store our libraries,” said LSF Executive Director Lisa K. Dauphin.

“We’re excited to bring our community’s experiences to the forefront in this report.”
