The Black Diamond Library: A Great Local Resource for Ten Trails Families 

Black Diamond has been committed to providing library services to residents since the first library opened in a city hotel in 1917. The current Black Diamond Library is just a one-mile walk or bike ride from Ten Trails at 24707 Roberts Drive, and is a wonderful resource for the whole family! The library, which is affiliated with the King County Library System, is dedicated to supporting families in the area with activities for kids like arts and crafts, Lego creative play, story time, and a family book club in Spanish.
