However you quantify it, the existing Sequim Branch building is simply too small – even for current use.

Opened to the public in 1983, the Sequim Branch Library consists of 6,000 sq ft of space. With a collection of over 55,000 items, it includes study and reading areas for adults, public computers, areas for children and teens, and a community meeting room.

The Sequim Branch is one of four NOLS libraries, serving a population of about 30,000 on the east end of Clallam County. Five times smaller than the Main Library in Port Angeles, usage statistics are surprisingly comparable.
