My Business Attributes can't be set on Libraries

I'm attempting to set some attributes for the locations I manage. All the locations are in the category Library.

 

In the admin options I don't have any Attributes button to click. I also attempted to set attributes via the bulk upload spreadsheet option, but I get an error that the attributes don't apply to my category.

 

Why don't any apply to libraries? I'd love to be able to share that we have bike racks, for example, or wheelchair accessible entrances & restrooms.

Hi @Chad H

 

At the minute you cannot select attributes, these will be populated based upon feedback from Maps users.

 

Once they start populating you only have an Yes / No option.

Thanks, though now I'm extra confused - blog posts like this one have screenshots of the Attributes field in action: http://blumenthals.com/blog/2016/12/02/google-my-business-rolling-out-attributes-to-single-listings/

 

Also Google's documentation for bulk location updates mention that you can add attributes via fields in the bulk spreadsheet. But I get the mentioned errors when I do that.
