A TRANSFORMATION

Watch our 7-minutevideo. Your Library is an open door to information, education and inspiration for thousands of Bonner County residents and visitors. But space constraints and changing trends are limiting access to materials, services and programs that our community members need. Your Library Transformation will bring the Sandpoint Branch Library building up to speed with the transformation that has been steadily growing for more than a decade.

A TRANSFORMED LIBRARY WILL 

Increase early literacy opportunities
Triple community meeting space
Expand parking access and green spaces
Boost the large-print and youth adult collections
Dignify teens with personalized space and resources
Enhance technology access
Provide dedicated, quiet study zones
Create positive, engaging and relevant experiences

PROJECT PARTNERS

The $2.7 million project is funded by proceeds from the sale of the former library building, grants, and private contributions including a $100,000 from the estate of library patron, Mary Zindler. 

SUPPORT

Your support will ensure that residents have access to the materials, services and programs they need. Support Your Library Transformation today, and we will memorialize your gift with a lasting demonstration of your commitment to your community.
