Correction - thanks to readers on the scene, we now know that the accident happened Thursday July 19, before 6:30pm.

On Thursday night, July 19, 2018, a person drove into the staff entrance door at the Shoreline Library, 345 NE 175th, pushing in the doorway and part of the wall.

The entrance has been closed off with a wooden barricade, and no one can access the area near the back door. The only way in or out for staff and patrons is the main front door.

Staff will need to work around limitations on the back room but there will be no impact on patrons.

Friends of the Library will need to ask that people keep their book donations until the back room is available. The book sale is in September, so they do not expect this will cause major problems.

Just a clarification, the accident happened Thursday night (19th) not Saturday as the article says.

The crash occurred late afternoon on Thursday, July 19. I was there about 6:30pm and the fire department, etc., were all still on site.
