What would the library of your dreams look like? Fort Vancouver Regional Libraries is seeking public input for an expanded Ridgefield Community Library.
Earlier this year the Ridgefield Community Center Board donated their building to the Fort Vancouver Regional Library Foundation to ensure that the new library remained a community resource in the heart of Ridgefield’s downtown civic core.
The facility will take advantage of the full community center – which the current library occupies only a small percentage off – allowing the library to grow from its existing 2,055 square feet to up to 11,000 square feet.
The public is invited to join library staff, Friends of Ridgefield Community Library, Fort Vancouver Regional Library Foundation, and project architects from Johansson Wing Architecture to help identify the features they want to see in their new library on May 7 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at the community center, 210 North Main Avenue, Ridgefield, WA.
FVRLibraries recently hired Johansson Wing Architecture to develop options and architectural designs for the expanded library. A general contractor will be hired once designs have been solidified. The library district hopes to begin construction this fall.
