[ARCHIVED] County Board hires firm for Valley Library study

Valley Library

The Washington County Board of Commissioners approved a $44,810 contract with Hagen, Christensen & McIlwain Architects for architectural design and community engagement services to do improvements to the county's Valley Branch Library.The Valley Branch Library has been in its current location in Lakeland for close to 30 years. The current location needs physical improvements for energy efficiency, accessibility, and to address general wear and tear of the building. The library space needs improvements due to age, increasing community expectations, and the changes occurring in library services.

The architectural firm will work with the community and the library to identify programming needs and space plans. This funding will allow for the implementation of the plans developed.
Community engagement will occur in March and April, and designs will be developed during May and April, and will be presented to the board in June.
The final design should be complete by fall 2018, and construction is scheduled for 2019.
