The Library Connection @ Crossroads will be closed from Monday to Dec. 15 for its third expansion since it opened in 2002.

The project will add about 700 square feet to the 3,000-square-foot King County minilibrary in the Crossroads Shopping Center.

Designed to serve the diverse Crossroads community, the library offers materials, information and classes in several languages.

The Library Connection @ Crossroads now handles about the same volume of checkouts as do many of the regular libraries.

Returns can be made at any other King County Library. The Lake Hills Library, 15228 Lake Hills Blvd., is the nearest branch. For more information, call the library at 425-644-6203 or the King County Library Answerline at 425-462-9600.

Redmond’s Trails Commission has appointed Michael Pfaff as its volunteer youth advocate.


Name sought

for new school

The Issaquah School District needs a name for its new elementary school, which is scheduled to open in September 2006.

The school has been known as “E-14,” but the district says its new name may come from geographical landmarks, housing developments, voting precincts, directional names or people who have contributed to education in the district.

Suggestions, which should include the reason, should be significant to people in the district and should not conflict with names of other schools in the district or surrounding districts.

Suggestions should not include living persons unless they deserve an exception.

There is no limit to the number of names that can be suggested, but they must be turned in by Wednesday.

Mail information to Name that School, 565 N.W. Holly St., Issaquah, WA 98027, or e-mail to
