Why open a new library?

  • Students attend five public schools located in the Lakewood-Smokey Point area.
  • Residents of the area live more than five miles away from libraries in Arlington, Marysville and Stanwood. Heavy traffic in the area makes travel to these libraries difficult.
  • Sno-Isle Libraries' 2016-2025 Capital Facilities Plan identified the Lakewood-Smokey Point area as a rapidly growing community underserved by library facilities in other communities.
  • The population of this area is projected to increase 10 percent by 2021.
