Call for Volunteers
We are always interested in reliable volunteers who care about the Library.
Meet other people with the same esoteric interests that you have.
The Library has over 13,000 books, and they need to stay organized by category - volunteering is a great way to see what
the Library has to offer. We also need help with publicity and fundraising.
E-mail us or stop by if interested.
We are a library, not a bookstore.
We occassionally sell a few books which have been donated and will not fit in our small space.
Stop by and browse, we have some great titles available right now, and they are all very reasonably priced, most in the $2 - $4 range.

We are located in the basement of the Kress Building, in Ballard. Our landlord will not allow us to put a sign on the building,
so the only way you can find us is to know what glass door to look into!
When we are open, there should be a sandwich board sign on the street with our name and logo.
The Market Street entrance is a glass door between Bop Street Records and The Pie Shop. Stairs lead down to the lower level.
Sometimes our neighbors in the building lock it as they leave, even though we are still open. If the front entrance on Market Street
is locked, and our sandwich board sign is out on the street, try the 56th Street entrance, at the back of the building
and go down two flights of stairs to the basement.
Or call us at (206) 329-1794. We shudder to think how many times people have called us to say, "We're out here on the sidewalk, but
the door is locked!" (Our neighbors are getting MUCH better, but there is turnover, and we never know when we will get a new neighbor
that needs to be clued in.)
