Sequim: Group considers need for large new library

SEQUIM — A study is under way to determine the feasibility of constructing a new North Olympic Library System branch library in the city.

“We need it,” said Tom Mort, president of the Friends of the Sequim Library. “Our current building is really going downhill. It is too old and just too small.”

Speaking to the City Council early this week, Mort said Sequim architect Ken Hays has agreed to conduct the feasibility study and prepare cost estimates for a new library.

The current branch at 630 N. Sequim Ave. was constructed in 1983.
