Imagine Washougal Community Library

Progress and next steps:

Here's what's happening:

  • We are working with a developer to site the new library in a mixed-use space in downtown Washougal. We hope to have more news soon!
  • The FVRL Board of Trustees has set aside $1 million for the building project.

Once we have a site, here are the next steps:

  • Work with the public and community partners to map out the community's needs in a new library
  • Develop a full budget for the project
  • Establish a plan for fundraising with the FVRL Foundation and the Friends of Washougal Community Library
