Expanded Auburn Library Opening Celebration to be Held Sept. 15

To mark the grand opening of the expanded and renovated Auburn Library, a community ribbon-cutting celebration will be held Saturday, Sept. 15 at 9:30am at 1102 Auburn Way South. Please join community leaders, library staff, Friends of the Auburn Library, builders and residents in celebrating the landmark occasion.

The 5,000 square foot library expansion project brings the library to a total of 20,000 square feet, thanks to the $172 million library capital bond approved by voters to fund major improvement projects at KCLS libraries. Two sides of the original building were expanded and glass walls allow views of neighboring Les Gove Park. Additional features include a central reading area that encourages gathering, a modified entryway, a new Children’s Area, four small study rooms, a quiet study room and a flexible meeting room. The project also includes expanded parking, structural and electrical improvements and a rain garden.

Following the ribbon-cutting ceremony, the public is invited inside to tour the new library and enjoy refreshments and music.

For more information call 425.369.3275. More information about the project can be found here.
