Founded in the middle of World War II in 1942, the King County Library System (KCLS) is one of the busiest public library systems in the country. KCLS has 50 libraries - four of them right here - and more than 700,000 cardholders. 

In 2019, residents checked out more than 5.6 million digital eBooks and audiobooks through Rakuten OverDrive, making KCLS the No. 3 digital circulating library in the world!
