Sequim’s Future Library Project

About the Future Library Project

The cramped and aging branch library that serves the Sequim / Dungeness Valley area has been a critical concern for NOLS, and for the community, for decades. In 2014 NOLS initiated a phased planning project to find a Future Library solution. Community engagement has been an important part of this careful planning process.

Conceptual Planning and Design was completed in May 2018. During this planning phase NOLS, SHKS Architects, and the community have worked together to build a conceptual design that reflects the community’s vision of its Future Library.

This page will be updated shortly, as planning concludes, and the project moves on to make Sequim’s Future Library a reality!

The current Sequim Branch was built in 1983 to serve a population of approximately 14,000. During the last 35 years the Library has evolved and expanded to meet the needs of a growing population and a changing society. Now serving a population of around 30,000, the Sequim library facility is still only 6000 square feet small.

  • limited shelving space, seating space, parking, mobility access, and natural lighting,
  • dated network infrastructure, insufficient power outlets and data ports,
  • undersized meeting rooms, no conference or quiet study spaces
  • minimal display areas, and no interior book returns
