Reimagining Spaces – Chelan

Chelan is a tight-knit community with a strong history of support for its public library. The branch sees diverse use throughout the day from all segments of the community. Toddler story times in the morning, give way to seniors reading the paper later in the day followed by teens working on homework after school. The branch saw a significant renovation in 2013 funded through broad community support. The 7,000 square foot branch features a quiet reading room, a designated children’s area, a community stage, a separate space for public computers, and a public meeting room.

As we begin to explore updates to the interior spaces, Chelan Library is ripe for a reimagining that capitalizes on the many ways the community currently uses the space, while also providing new opportunities and resources.

Anticipated improvements to the branch include:

  • New paint throughout
  • Improved service point
  • Updated shelving and furniture
  • Partial flooring upgrades
  • Private, reservable spaces

UPDATE! Community Engagement in Chelan kicked off on February 8th. Over the course of two months, 188 residents provided feedback on how they utilize the library, their preferred design directions, and dreams for the future space. Our design team will be incorporating all of that feedback into a refresh plan that will respond to the needs and hopes of the community. Stay tuned!


Find out more about the project as a whole and how it will affect your community.
