McCall Public Library Expansion

The Library Expansion Project is officially under construction.  

On Wednesday, August 17, the first milestone in new library construction was celebrated on the City Campus in front of the Library with a ceremonial event.

The project to build a new, state-of-the-art library to serve the community for the next 50 years and beyond, expected to take two years, began with a ceremonial demolition of the old fire station. The building is being removed to make room for the new structure that will front the existing library. After demolition is complete, a team will build the new library in front of the existing library and parking will be added on the east side. The new build will take 1½ years. Then, the existing library will be renovated. The entire project is scheduled to be completed by August 2024.

Thanks to our City of McCall Voters and generous donors the library is expanding.

Spring 2023

  • With the great snow pack this year, our construction crew found ourselves in full snow removal mode upon remobilizing to the McCall Library site this early spring.  Once we were able to get the snow dealt with, we focused in on finishing up the foundations.  All exterior foundation walls are placed now, and we installed damp-proofing / water-proofing membrane and foundation insulation prior to backfill.  We placed all interior footings that will support the wood columns and beams last week, and we have started on underground mechanical / electrical / plumbing rough in.  This MEP rough in will continue for the next couple weeks, and we are shooting for a slab placement around June 20th.  Once the slab is placed, exterior wood framed walls will start, so we will see the building start to go vertical in June!
