On Thursday, September 27, all branches and locations of the Seattle Public Library will be closed for a staff in-service day. Books may be returned at the drop locations.
As of this week Metro Transit has added more bus trips to the University of Washington for the start of fall quarter classes. There are other changes in bus schedules and routes, and beginning on Saturday, September 29, all fares will be collected upon boarding the bus. Watch for slow-downs as the riders adjust to the new fare collection system. Another big adjustment is that the Ride Free Area in downtown Seattle is ending, so fare collection will take place at the start of all bus rides, even in downtown.
