Spokane Valley Library Campaign

Building a community where we can learn, work, create, and thrive together

The library is the cornerstone of civic pride and essential to a healthy, vibrant community. More than just books and computers, libraries are an investment in our community’s future generations of thinkers, doers, and leaders. The new Spokane Valley Library is designed to be an efficient, comfortable, multi-purpose facility.

Located next to the planned expansion of Balfour Park, residents of all ages will find inspiration and connection. Flexible meeting rooms, co-working spaces, and current technology will be available to the public at no charge, creating a business center that spurs economic development.

Join the Campaign

Private sector donations given toward our goal of $1 million will enhance construction amenities as well as provide space for public art and other similarly prominent features.

For 67 years, Spokane Valley Library has served generations with high-quality programs, resources, and services. During that time, Spokane Valley’s population has grown from 40,000 to over 100,000.

As the oldest library building in the county system, Spokane Valley Library served over 272,000 visitors in 2019, including the more than 19,000 attendees to 840 educational library programs.

The new Spokane Valley Library will be located at the corner of Sprague Avenue and Herald Road with an anticipated grand opening in 2023. With the library attracting large numbers of people, this location will create economic opportunities for existing area businesses and will attract new business.

Private sector donations given toward our goal of $1 million will enhance construction to create and furnish:

  • A large, flexible community room with multimedia capabilities for up to 200 people
  • An outdoor patio with access to the community room
  • An audio-visual recording studio
  • Four smaller conference rooms
  • Space for public art and/or notable amenities

Private sector donations given toward our goal of $1 million will enhance construction and offer naming opportunities and prominent recognition while creating an impactful legacy.

For a contribution of $500, your name or company name will be engraved on a paver and added to the plaza on the north side of the library. A paver is a great way to honor a loved one, express civic pride, and make a lasting gift.

All contributions are valued, no matter the size.
