Building a better tomorrow

Robust libraries do more than just check out books—we shape the culture of lifelong education for a brighter future.

Nestled in the heart of Westfield steps away from Grand Junction Plaza, the new Westfield Washington Public Library will be a 43,000 square-foot facility guaranteed to make a longstanding community impact.

  • Intimate meeting rooms for small groups
  • Event space for up to 125 people

  • On-site coffee shop
  • Outdoor patio seating
