Did you know your WA library card could do this?!

Did you know your WA library card could do this?!

Library cards open entire worlds of imagination – and I’m not just talking about books! Many Washington State library cards literally open doors through free admission partnerships with local museums including the EMP, Seattle Aquarium and so much more.


The library card is free. The admission is free. What’s not to love?!

Look for reciprocal library programs!

Almost anyone who lives in Western Washington can get a Seattle Public Library Card!


All it takes to get a Seattle Public Library Card is to be someone (or the spouse or underage dependent of someone) who lives, works, goes to school or owns property in the city of Seattle, Bothell or most of King County… or someone who already has a library card from one of the following libraries:

  • Everett Public Library
  • Kitsap Regional Library
  • King County Library System
  • Pierce County Library System
  • Puyallup Public Library
  • Sno-Isle Regional Library System
  • Timberland Regional Library

Getting a reciprocal library card is easy. Just bring one of those library cards, valid photo ID and proof of home address to the Seattle Public Library to receive your new card.


Most of the museums in our area have similar museum reservation programs. It’s a great (and free!) way to enjoy a spring break, summer break or basically any break… and for homeschoolers like us, these programs are absolutely fantastic!

Look for what your library has to offer!

Hi there,

First, thank you so much for your dedication and perseverance in researching, collecting, and organizing all of this information (and for having the generosity to share it!) I know it's more time consuming and challenging than people think. At times, it might also feel like a more thankless job than it is but be assured it is GREATLY APPRECIATED and insurmountably helpful. So, THANK YOU!

Second, do you have any info on Spokane Valley, WA libraries or Coeur D'Alene, ID libraries? It would be fantastic if you had the time to look into either of these. Thank you again for all of your effort!
