Call the Library at (425) 235-2331

During most of the year, if school is in session, we are open:

  • Monday – Thursday; 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Friday; 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

If school is not in session, hours may vary. If you call when we’re closed, and you leave us your name and phone number, we’ll return your call the next business day.

And, of course, you can always come into the library!


Email the RTC Library for Help (Usually answered within one business day.)
