We are fundraising for a new library in Silverdale. The Central Kitsap community and branch patrons have grown and expanded beyond the limits of Silverdale’s current library. Nearly 10,000 people visit this small library building - which is just 5,000 square feet and offers only 12 parking spaces - each month to check out books and participate in the Library’s events and programs.

The new library has been designed to meet the growing needs of the Central Kitsap community. The new building will sit on the corner of Bucklin Hill and Blaine Avenue, along the Clear Creek Trail and next to the recent Bucklin Hill Bridge Project. Rice Fergus Miller Architects have crafted an amazing library with a larger collection and more seating for readers, community meeting space that can welcome up to 200 people and a beautiful 1,900 square foot mezzanine and outdoor patio that overlooks the Dyes Inlet. 

Kitsap Regional Library Foundation is working to raise $7 million for the construction of the new building and is seeking support from our local government, foundations, organizations and individual donors. Donate today to help build this Library.
