Invest in Woodland Community Library

Architects' rendering of new Woodland Community Library building exterior

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:

  • July 2022: We are revising the schematic design to fit the 7,500 square-foot building.
  • December 2021: The project had been on hold since late 2020, when the estimate for the 12,000 square-foot library was nearly $2 million over the $7 million budget. It was determined the best course is to reduce the overall size.

Next Steps:

  • August–November 2022: Design development and estimating
  • December 2022–March 2023: Construction drawings
  • April–May 2023: Permitting and bids
  • June 2023: Groundbreaking
  • June 2023–2024: Construction will take up to 12 months; the new library is expected to open summer 2024
