Coupeville Public Library opens Monday
March 5, 2010 · 10:41 AM
Central Whidbey residents will have a chance to check out a book while checking out what $2.3 million worth of taxpayer bonds will purchase.
The newly renovated Coupeville Public Library is scheduled to open 10 a.m. on Monday, March 8. The announcement was made this week.
The library’s opening finishes an eight-month project that more than doubles the size of the building located on Alexander Street. Patrons will enjoy a large community meeting room, children’s space, computer access and a large multi-media selection.
The building features a host of environmentally friendly features including solar panels, energy efficient mechanical systems, abundant natural lighting and drought tolerant native landscaping.
Voters approved the bonds during an August 2008 election.
A series of events are being planned to take place in April to mark the grand opening of the Coupeville branch of Sno-Isle Regionaly Library System.
