Phase 1 funding is anchored with a Capital Budget appropriation by the State of Washington. Additional support in the form of staffing resources is being provided by Sno-Isle Libraries and other public and non-profit stakeholders.
The funding model for subsequent phases will be established by agreement among stakeholders and is anticipated to include a mix of budget, services, resources and support.
Total project cost will depend on a combination of costs related to land acquisition and construction as well as the services provided and service levels.
Response to the Mariner Library reflects the desire of area residents for services and a gathering place.
