The Road to a Future Lake Stevens Library

The Lake Stevens Library has been providing service to the community for over 75 years. The library is currently located in a temporary location at 2211 Grade Road, with a full array of in-building and contact-free services available. Sno-Isle Libraries' priority is partnering with the growing community to complete plans for a new library on the property owned by the district in the Chapel Hill neighborhood.

Long-term Facility Solution

Sno-Isle Libraries is committed to engaging with the Lake Stevens community to determine how to best fill the community’s needs in the long term. Work continues toward the goal of a new permanent library on the property the library owns in the Chapel Hill neighborhood. State grant funds of $3.1 million have been secured toward the construction of a new library in Lake Stevens. 

Civic Center Campus

The library district acknowledges the value of the joint exploratory process that began in the fall of 2020 with the City of Lake Stevens and the Lake Stevens Sewer District to evaluate the feasibility of a Civic Center Campus. The work ahead in determining the design and details of the new library will build on the concepts developed as a part of this process, including the valuable community input already gathered. Sno-Isle Libraries remains interested in maintaining any cooperative elements of the civic center project that can be preserved and plans to begin construction this year in a way that is coordinated with the City's priorities.
