After 27 years the south Everett library is set to expand.

The City of Everett wants to know what you think should be in a larger south Everett library.

The city has announced expansion plans are underway to add 5,000 square feet to the south branch including new study and quiet rooms, a large meeting space, additional public restrooms, more computers and a larger children’s area.

The project will also add 36 additional parking spaces by demolishing a City-owned duplex on the site and relocating IT services to the expanded facility.

The Evergreen branch currently has nearly 8,600 square feet of space, compared to 54,000 square feet at the main branch.

In 2015 9,745 children attended programs at the Evergreen branch, compared to 7,446 at the main library.

You can CLICK HERE to take the branch redesign survey online or fill out a paper survey at either library branch until March 20th.

Construction is set to start later this year.
