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.

Summer 2023

  • The concrete slab for the library addition was placed on 6/20, and the wood framing started a few days later after the slab was properly cured.  Framing has been moving along very well, with the beautiful glue-lam columns and beams being set the 1st couple weeks of July, and the cross-laminated timber floor structure being installed the week of 7/17 – 7/21.  We have now started to frame the second-floor walls, and the glue-lam columns and beams for the 2nd floor will start installing next week and the roof structure will start to be installed in mid-August.
