The new Mariner Library will be just off 128th Street near the Albertson's store.
Sno-Isle Libraries to open new library in Mariner area
A new public library is coming soon to the area near Mariner High School.
"This has been a long time coming," said Sno-Isle Libraries Executive Director Jonalyn Woolf-Ivory. "If not for the recession, this library would have opened years ago. Now, we're moving as quickly as possible to give this community the library service it deserves."
The library district has leased space at 520 128th St SW, Suite A9-10, Everett, WA 98204. Renovation work is underway and library officials are aiming to open the new library in the first quarter of 2017.
"The location is in a high-traffic shopping area, across the street from a transit center," Woolf-Ivory said. "It's also close to five elementary schools and Mariner High School."
The new Mariner Library will open with the full support of Mukilteo School District officials.
"The Mukilteo School District has been tremendously helpful in their enthusiasm to locate a demonstration library for this underserved community," Woolf-Ivory said. "A survey of local school-district families showed 99 percent would like a library in this area."
In June, Sno-Isle Libraries completed a 10-year Capital Facilities Plan that made recommendations for all library-district buildings. The plan identifies the Mariner/128th Street area for a demonstration library.
