Evergreen Library Redesign

Evergreen Library is a 17,367 square foot library constructed in 1993 and nestled into the hillside just south of Historic Downtown Evergreen. We've begun planning for a major redesign of the library in 2022-2023.

Our vision for the Evergreen Library Redesign Project is for an updated library that is welcoming to all, where the patron experience is one of absolute delight, and where residents feel respected and understood by the library. We also want to align the redesign with our mission and vision of a 21st century library, while upgrading and modernizing resources, spaces, technology, mechanical, plumbing and electrical systems in the building.

Project Updates

Evergreen Library is closed, and construction is underway for the Evergreen redesign! Effective October 16, library services are available at the Evergreen Parkway Temporary Library, 3731 Evergreen Parkway, with events and programs held at alternative locations. Please check our events calendar for more.

If you would like to visit our Conifer location in the meantime, please note that the Conifer Library is located in the Conifer High School and has non-traditional hours, so be sure to check location details before you go.

The Evergreen Redesign Project is being led by Eppstein Uhen Architects (EUA). EUA’s portfolio of work includes the renovation of the Columbine Library and other local Library systems’ locations, such as the 21c Library in Colorado Springs. Two leading experts in educational and community-forward design, Kelly Wemple and Ryan Wallace, are the Project Leads.

Board and Public Discussion

This project was discussed during the July 20, 2023 Board Meeting. Read about the latest updates, submit a comment to the Board or find attendance information.
