The Vision:

To create a library that is welcoming, cozy, and inspirational. A library that strengthens the downtown experience of Washougal, reflecting its climate, landscape, and culture while remaining flexible to the future needs and aspirations of the community.

Project Milestones:

  • June 2022: Hacker Architects and FVRLibraries presented updated drawings and plans to the community. See the video above. Send questions, comments, and design input for the project: WashougalLibraryDesign@hackerarchitects.com.
  • May 2021: FVRLibraries selected Hacker Architects to design the new library.
  • November 2020: Lone Wolf Development donated a 17,424 square-foot lot on Durgan Street, between Main and C Streets. The location sits between Washougal City Hall and the post office, adjacent to shopping, restaurants, and residential housing.
