Kitsap Regional Library, Silverdale

KRL’s Board chose an estuary site for its new library in Silverdale. The site features high visibility, good access, and is adjacent to Clear Creek Estuary and Trail – offering a rich opportunity for extended library programming, especially for children.

To meet the design goals and objectives it was important to engage the community in the design process. The concept for the new library was developed over the course of meetings with the public, KRL Staff, Friends of the Silverdale Library, and multiple internal design team sessions. With insight from the library, the design team was able to weave a story that will bring a new aesthetic to Silverdale and fulfill the needs of the library and the community.
