Nancy Tessman visits local branch
Tuesday, August 14, 2012
As members of the Friends of the Washougal Community Library continue to support the idea of a new library, there are discussions regarding whether it would be beneficial to sign a lease at Washougal Town Square or wait to build.
Nancy Tessman, the new executive director of the Fort Vancouver Regional Library District, recently walked through one of the vacant spaces at Washougal Town Square.
"It has very nice elements," she said during a recent Friends meeting.
An alternative to leasing could involve constructing a library on city-owned property near City Hall. No particular site has been discussed, according to Washougal Mayor Sean Guard.
A progress report regarding the potential of a new library will be included in the next Friends meeting Thursday, Aug. 23, at 7 p.m., in the library, 1661 "C" St. For more information, call 835-5393.
