Reimagine your library

The Arlington Library Remodel is underway, the replacement of the roof kickstarted the upgrades. The remodel will focus on improved accessibility and sustainability, as well as general upgrades. Our goal is to reimagine the library to ensure the space meets the community’s needs for years to come.

The library will be updated to provide a welcoming space for the community to gather:

  • Interactive children’s learning, quiet study spaces, collaborative work areas, hands on learning, public computer access, and Wi-Fi.
  • Library grounds and outdoor spaces will be transformed with full site accessibility to be more inclusive and usable.

Customers and community members continue to share their vision for the Arlington Library. Sno-Isle Libraries prioritizes engaging and listening to our community.

How is the project funded?

  • $867,000 from the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation

Sno-Isle Libraries is approaching funding capital projects in ways that reflect and align with each community. We are optimizing funding by pursuing a combination of sources – grant funding, capital campaigns, regular levy funds – and reducing the reliance on public bond elections.
