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.

FALL 2022

With the Annex Building demolition completed at the end of August, we have transitioned into site excavation & digging for the new library addition’s foundation.  The entire site has been cut down to sub-grade level and the excavation for the foundation is complete. Structural fill was brought in and installed at the old foundation location of the annex building to properly prep the soil below the footprint of the new addition.  More fill is stock piled onsite, in anticipation of backfill for the new foundation.  We have completed the required testing and secured the environmental safety of the site and are now forming footings.  The foundation work will continue through the month of October. The underground mechanical, electrical and plumbing rough in will start by the end October. 



 Open M-F 10-6, Saturdays 10-2.
