The City of Tacoma will be opening the doors to prospective buyers interested in purchasing two Tacoma Public Library branches closed last year and now poised to be sold as surplus properties.

The Swan Creek Branch, located at 3828 East Portland Avenue, and the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK) Branch, located at 1902 South Cedar Street, were closed due to budget shortfalls and costs related to deferred maintenance.
