Sedro-Woolley Library – Project of the Week

Sedro-Woolley Library, located at 110 W. State St., opened last summer.

The 12,000-square-foot library features an open floor plan with large windows and low shelving to allow natural lighting and ventilation. The structure features exposed glulam purlins bearing on long-spanning glulam girders and large glulam columns.

With a front along West State Street, west of the downtown core, the building serves as a visible landmark for residents and visitors as they enter the city, as well as an iconic educational reference point for the community and a cultural attraction that draws people in.

The facility offers multi-purpose community space used by early childhood learning groups, teens and tweens, STE(A)M groups, and senior lifelong learners.

The project received a 2021 AIA Washington Civic Design citation award.
