A New Library for Silverdale
In the fall of 2018, the Library and the Central Kitsap School District launched a partnership to relocate the Silverdale library to the south end of the Central Kitsap High School campus. With two schools, multiple sports fields and tennis courts, a 900-seat auditorium and a family-friendly walking trail, the campus is expertly focused on enriching our community's kids. With a new public library, this campus becomes an invaluable place for the whole community.
Overlooking Dye's Inlet and Mount Rainier, and more than double the current library's size, the new library will be the "front porch" of the campus. With dedicated space for children, tweens and teens and community meeting and study rooms, there is something for everyone. Patrons can look forward to increased access to computers and more books, music and movies available for check out. And, of course, the new location offers plenty of parking.
With your support, we have raised 84 percent of our $5.5 million goal and recently launched the final phase of our fundraising campaign, the Community Campaign for a New Library in Silverdale. To kick off the Community Campaign, the Friends of the Silverdale Library raised $100,000 for the Campaign and have challenged the community to match their gift!
We are grateful to the donors who have joined the Campaign. Your generosity and vision have helped make a new library in Silverdale a reality.
