McCall Public Library Expansion

The Library Expansion Project is officially under construction.  

 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 was removed to make room for the new structure that will front the existing library. Our team is now building 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 November 2024.

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

November 2023

November was a very productive month for our construction team at the McCall Library.  We have been pushing on getting the exterior cladding systems completed prior to winter, and we are getting close and only have the metal panels at the 2nd floor to complete at this point.  We will continue to push this install through the month of December so that we have everything done on the exterior and can focus on the interior finishes through the winter. On the inside of the building, we have started painting on the 1st floor, and are currently sheetrocking & taping on the 2nd floor.  Behind paint completion on the 1st floor, we will start installing tile, millwork, and mechanical / electrical / plumbing trim.  We are very happy with our progress, and are looking good to continue interior work through the winter and turn the addition over on time next spring.
