The Vision:

FVRLibraries, alongside Fort Vancouver Regional Library Foundation and Friends of Woodland Community Library, is excited to provide this preview of your new Woodland Community Library. Working together, we aim to build a welcoming and accessible library that is a flexible and inspiring environment for learning and collaboration, enriches your connections to the community, becomes a central destination for generations to come, and anchors future development in Woodland.

Project Milestones:

  • October 16, 2023: Construction began on the new library building. 
  • July 17, 2023: Permission was granted by the FVRLibraries Board of Trustees for the Executive Director to negotiate with the construction firm on a final contract.
  • July 10, 2023: Construction bid process closed. Out of four responsive bids, Bremik Construction, Inc., was selected as being the lowest responsive bid.
  • June 17, 2023: Groundbreaking ceremony at 411 Lakeshore Drive, Woodland, WA, 98674. 
  • June 2023: Construction drawings released for contractors to submit construction bids. Groundbreaking ceremony at 411 Lakeshore Drive, Woodland, WA, 98674 scheduled for Saturday, June 17. 

Next Steps:
