Now, 35 years later, the Sequim Branch Library is bursting at the seams, with community members again looking at ways to address the squeeze. It’s been an acknowledged problem for at least 20 years, and the library is actively working on a solution through the Sequim Library Expansion Project which is currently concluding Phase 2 (Conceptual Design).
The discussion about a Sequim Library expansion has moved a step forward in the past week, with the NOLS Board of Trustees agreeing unanimously in favor of building a whole new library over a remodel of the existing building. The architect estimates the cost of a remodel at a little over 10 million dollars for 17,000 square feet, and a little under 11 million for a new building of the same size, or a difference of only about ten percent.
A proposed expansion of the Sequim Library could go before voters this November depending on a special meeting of the North Olympic Library System’s trustees next week.
