Camano Island Library seeks artists’ proposals

Artists are invited to submit design concepts for three Camano Island Library projects. While preference will be given to artists from Camano Island or Stanwood, all are welcome to submit proposals.

The Camano Island Library Art Committee will serve as selection panel. It is comprised of Friends of the Library members, project architects, and Sno-Isle Libraries staff and donors. Submission deadlines for the three projects are: Jan.29 for the children’s room project; Jan. 29 for the community room project; and Feb. 29 for the reading room project.

The new Camano Island Library is located in Terry’s Corner on Camano Island. For details on art project requirements, theme, budget, and submission content, please visit sno-isle.org/locations/camano/call-to-artists.

Camano Island residents passed a bond to build a permanent library on Camano Island in April 2014. Construction for the remodel/expansion of a former restaurant began in early 2015. The new library opened on Aug. 1. Its features include a reading room with a fireplace, a teen friendly space, a larger children’s room appealing to both young readers and their caregivers, attractive and easy to browse displays of books and media throughout the library, and a multi-purpose community room.
