Sno-Isle Libraries is ready to turn the page to our next chapter at the Langley Library. The Langley Library remodel and revitalization project will begin on Feb. 20. Sno-Isle Libraries has awarded Whidbey Island contractor, Valdez Construction, the contract to complete this project. The current timeline for construction completion is 9-12 months.
The last day of service at Langley Library is Saturday, Feb. 17. A temporary library space will be available for you at South Whidbey Community Center beginning Feb. 23.
Commitment to Library Services
While construction is underway, our commitment to providing library services in Langley remains unwavering. Our community will be able to pick-up their holds, get help from our staff, and more.
Road so Far
Our cherished library in the heart of Langley will have its storied walls enhanced while preserving its rich history. Sno-Isle Libraries collaborated with the City of Langley and our community as we collectively envisioned the next 100 years. After this project is complete, our community will be able to enjoy reading nooks, an interactive children’s area, and a new meeting room to gather with your neighbors and friends.
This project is moving forward following approval from the City of Langley’s Design Review Board, Historic Preservation Commission, and the Langley City Council. In 2021, Sno-Isle Libraries was awarded a $700,000 Washington State Library Capital Improvement Grant to improve accessibility and update the building, while preserving the historic nature of the Langley Library. The total project cost is around $4 million with contributions from Sno-Isle Libraries, a state grant, generous contributions by the Friends of the Langley Library and Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation.
This impactful investment in the historic Langley Library will set the stage for the next 100 years of library services for our community.
