CityStream: Libraries & LEAD
CityStream: Libraries & LEAD

CityStream checks in with The Seattle Public Library, marking the 125th anniversary of the first public library to open in Seattle. We look at the evolution of one of the city's most beloved public institutions, from a drive-up window for book pick-ups to borrowing Wi-Fi hotspots. Plus, we discover the library's historic Carnegie libraries. Then, we learn about the Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (LEAD) program, designed to help break the cycle of incarceration for nonviolent drug offenders. LEAD's innovative approach offers an option beyond jail and has become a national model. Host Mona Locke brings you these stories from the Central Library.
