Design for Birch Bay library express to be revealed


The Birch Bay community is invited to an upcoming community meeting to see design plans for the Birch Bay Vogt Library Express and provide feedback on those plans.

Whatcom County Library System and Friends of Birch Bay Library will hold the meeting 6-7:30 p.m. Monday, June 10 at the library site, 7948 Birch Bay Drive. Osborn Architects Inc. representatives will show renderings of the floor plan and color scheme.

The Vogt homestead, with bay views and a large front lawn for activities, will have a 1,700-square-foot library within the existing structure. The express will have a small collection of library materials and an area for online reservations to be picked up. There will also be computers with printing and an area to host meetings of up to 40 people.

Construction is anticipated to begin in 2025, and the library express is expected to open later that year.
