Expanding our 45 year old Public Library to better serve McCall.
The McCall City Council voted on February 27,2020 regarding a proposed bond election option that would take the McCall Public Library Expansion project funding to the voters for approval. Your library was originally evaluated as inadequate in 2016, and after much public involvement, volunteer committee work, fundraising, grant writing and a large group of talented designers, construction specialists and library professionals this dream of an improved library to better serve the community is at the final stage.
