McCall Public Library Expansion

The first chapter of the library expansion project is complete.  

 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.

July 2024

2024 Renovation of the original library building, which will be connected to the expansion, continues this month. Crews have completely gutted the old building, reinforcing its structural capacity, adding structural steel and columns, and upgrading walls.  Extensive earthwork was necessary to add new plumbing, electrical, and data capacity under the slab. Fire protection is also at the rough in stage for the remodel.  Funding for this stage includes City funds, generous donations from the McCall Library Foundation donors, as well as the Idaho Women’s Charitable Fund.
