New Silverdale Library

New Website Coming October 6th

Kitsap Regional Library will be updating our website on October 6th. Our new website will be optimized for readability and usability on all devices, from smart phones to tablets to desktop computers. Your account, searching the online catalog and placing holds will not be affected by this update. If you have questions or concerns please do not hesitate to ask us.

The Kitsap Regional Library Board of Trusteeshas unanimously selected the site at the corner of Bucklin Hill Road and Blaine Avenue, adjacent to Clear Creek, for the location of the new Silverdale Library.

You can view the press release with the news and statements from each Board member concerning their decision.

Now that a site has been selected, it's up to the Library, with the community's help, to secure the site as the future home of the library in Silverdale. Funds must be raised by Nov. 25, 2015, to purchase the property from the current owners.

In the meantime, the Library has commissioned a conceptual design for the building at the site from Rice Fergus Miller Architects of Bremerton.


It is estimated that $7 million will have to be raised to complete the Silverdale library project. The fundraising effort will be spearheaded by the Kitsap Regional Library Foundation, which will be seeking private donations and grants for that purpose. KRL does not plan to begin construction until it has the money or pledges in hand to pay for the project.
