Sno-Isle Libraries awarded $600,000 State Grant for historic Langley Library remodel


Sno-Isle Libraries is the proud recipient of a $600,000 state grant to support the Langley Library remodel project and fund the installation of solar panels on the library building. Upon completion, the Langley Library building will be LEED silver certified.

“Sno-Isle Libraries is grateful to the State Legislature and Representative Dave Paul’s leadership to fund the historic Langley Library remodel as envisioned by the community. Thank you to Representative Dave Paul, Representative Clyde Shavers, State Senator June Robinson, the House Capital Budget Committee, and State Senator Ron Muzzall for their work advancing this grant. State support for our libraries helps us build inspiring spaces to connect everyone to their library,” said Sno-Isle Libraries Executive Director Lois Langer Thompson.

The Langley Library remodel project is underway. The current timeline for construction completion is 9-12 months. 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. The project will include interior and exterior upgrades to improve accessibility and energy efficiency while preserving the historic nature of the building.

The total project cost is around $4 million with contributions from Sno-Isle Libraries, state grants, and generous contributions by the Friends of the Langley Library and Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation.
