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.

  • Wood framing for the building finished up at the end of August.  Our construction crews have been focusing on completing the exterior cladding systems ahead of winter so that we can get the building buttoned up against the elements and continue to work on the interior finishes throughout the winter.  The roofing membrane is installed, exterior windows & doors are all installed, brick veneer is complete, the stucco system is currently being installed, along with exterior metal panels & siding.  On the interior, the mechanical / electrical / plumbing rough in is all complete on the 1st floor, and sheetrocking of walls has started.  MEP rough in continues on the 2nd floor, and sheetrock will begin on the 2nd floor at the beginning of November.
