Town Hall on Silverdale Library set

A special Town Hall Meeting of the Central Kitsap Community Council, will be at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 20, to hear about Kitsap Regional Library's progress toward a new Silverdale Library and to share the public's vision and ideas for a new facility.

The three site options that KRL has developed will be discussed. There will also be a presentation on what a new Silverdale Library could look like and what features modern libraries offer.

KRL originally proposed building a new Silverdale Library through a property tax levy, but since the defeat of that levy, KRL has focused on preparing for a capital campaign to pay for the library with grants and private donations. The last step before launching that fundraising effort is to select the site for the new library.

Ideas from the meeting will be incorporated into recommendations to the KRL Board of Trustees. The board is expected to decide on the location in June.

The meeting will be at the CK Fire & Rescue/Water District Office, 5300 N.W. Newberry Hill Road in Silverdale.
