10 reasons to visit the Mukilteo Library

By Ramanath Suryaprakash | Mar 20, 2013

I first visited the Mukilteo Library in 2005 when I immigrated to the United States. Since then, it’s my favorite place to be. The library is one of 21 libraries in the Sno-Isle Libraries system.

Here are the 10 reasons I like this library. I am sure you will, too.

1. There are computers and wireless Internet access to use for free.

2. This library is open seven days a week.

3. You have access to more than 1.2 million items – books, videos, e-books and magazines available through Sno-lsle Libraries.

4. You can borrow literally any item because the reserve system is free and items are delivered to your local library for pick up.

5. The library has a free meeting room for discussions, group studies and programs.

6. “Ask a Librarian” is a service where you spend one-on-one time with a librarian who helps you with research and questions.

7. The Friends of the Mukilteo Library have great books and magazines for sale for 25 cents up to $1 apiece. All sales support the library.

8. Your children receive free assistance (from volunteer tutors) with their homework at the Study Zone each Monday and Wednesday.

9. You can access millions of articles, journals and papers from licensed, authoritative databases on almost any topic.

10. You can borrow and download e-books, music, audio and video for your Kindle, iPad, and other Tablet devices for free.

The Mukilteo Library is at 4675 Harbour Pointe Blvd. in Mukilteo.

Phone: 425-493-8202. Hours: Monday – Thursday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Ramanath Suryaprakash is the chairman of the Mukilteo Library Advisory Board. Libraries have been a great influence in his education and career growth, as they allowed him to access several books, journals and papers to then excel in his academics and graduate first in his university’s engineering and management programs.
