Find it Friday! The Seattle Public Library releases collectible cards for branches with new Friday hours

July 5th, 2016 · No Comments

Thanks to funds from the seven-year, 2012 voter-approved Library levy, The Seattle Public Library will restore Friday operating hours at the High Point, International District/Chinatown, South Park and University branches starting July 1.

These four Library locations will now be open every day of the week. New open hours will be: 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.

To celebrate, the Library is launching “Find it on Friday!” with four collectible trading cards featuring architectural images from the branches with new Friday open hours. For a limited time, Library patrons can pick up a branch trading card at each of the four locations with newly added Friday hours. When patrons locate where the photo on the card was taken, they will receive a collectible stamp.

HOW TO PLAY

  1. Pick up a branch trading card from Library staff.
  2. Find the spot at the branch where the photo on the card was taken.
  3. Tell Library staff the location of the photo spot is and ask for a stamp.
  4. Did you Find it on Friday? In addition to a collectible stamp, you get a gold star!

Cards and stamps can be collected by visiting the High Point, International District/Chinatown, South Park and University branches from July 1 until Aug. 31, 2016. Cards for other Library locations will be available later this year.

To show love for the Library, patrons are encouraged to take a selfie with their trading cards and share it on social media using #finditatspl.
