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.

From birth through the golden years, the new building’s expanded space and services will have something for everyone:

  • Enhanced children’s discovery play area
  • Intimate meeting rooms for small groups
  • Event space for up to 125 people
  • Quiet reading nooks throughout the library
  • Makerspace with laser cutter and 3D printing
  • Digital media lab and podcast room
  • Homeschool meeting spaces for classrooms
  • On-site coffee shop
  • Outdoor patio seating
