Discussion on Sequim Library expansion continues Saturday

The conversation continues about the potential expansion of the Sequim Branch Library this Saturday.

Representatives with the North Olympic Library System, NOLS, and SHKS Architects host another community engagement project overview from10:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 2, at the library, 630 N. Sequim Ave.

The focus of the meetings centers around a broad community conversation about expanding the library due to overcrowded spaces and aging infrastructure in the 1983 building.

Library staff say the building is now in Phase 2, a Conceptual Design phase, of its expansion project that will help determine community priorities for an expanded library, develop a solid cost estimate, and produce a schematic design for an expanded library at the current location.

Registration is strongly encouraged due to limited space for an Interactive Design Workshop from 10:30am-noon, which library staff say is a chance for community members to “roll up their sleeves and ponder site-use and design elements up close.”

Participants will work in small teams to collaboratively develop their vision for a site plan or floor plan for the future library.

From 1:30-2:30 p.m. SHKS Architects and NOLS staff discuss the project overview, and from 2:30-3:30 p.m. community members can comment on the project, share thoughts and discuss design preferences.

This is the second of two meetings for the Conceptual Design phase.

To register, email Sequim@nols.org, or call 360-683-1161. Drop-in participation on the day of the event may be possible, depending on space availability.

For more information, visit www.nols.org, or contact Library Director Margaret Jakubcin at 360-417-8500, x7714, or via email to director@nols.org.
