Snoqualmie, North Bend, Fall City libraries to expand hours

All three libraries will be open at least six days a week. Hours were reduced during the pandemic.

Most libraries in and around the Snoqualmie Valley will soon be open six to seven days a week, the King County Library System announced Aug. 29.

Starting Sept. 10, hours will increase at the Fall City, North Bend, Snoqualmie, Redmond and Sammamish libraries.

The Snoqualmie library, which is currently closed on Friday and Saturdays, will be open everyday. The North Bend and Fall City libraries will expand to a Monday through Saturday schedule. Full hours are available at

“After the expansion in September, we will have increased open hours by 26% this year,” said KCLS Director of Library Operations Cecie Streitman. “We hope you have enjoyed spending more time in your libraries, and we look forward to seeing even more patrons this fall.”

Health mandates and guidelines during the COVID-19 Pandemic affected KCLS’ hours of operation and in-person services. KCLS reopened all library buildings to the public in July 2021, and has been steadily expanding hours and in-person services ever since.
