With an eye to the future, staff at Washington County Library are continually assessing and re-imagining the building facilities across our seven branches. In 2020, the county completed major projects at Wildwood Library in Mahtomedi and Valley Library in Lakeland.

Residents can get building project updates on this page, or by following the library on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram at @WashCoLib.
