Library remodel set to start


March 21, 2018


BEQUEST PAYS THE WAY: A bequest by Wilma Olsen in the 1990s is now helping to pay for the remodel of the Goldendale Library.

The remodel of the Goldendale Community Library is set to get underway in just a few weeks, thanks in great part, to the generosity of the late Wilma Olsen. Her bequest to the Goldendale Library in the late 1990s has grown to over $500,000 due to careful financial management by the Fort Vancouver Regional Library Foundation.

New windows, new lighting, and reconfigured ADA bathrooms will be installed. Quiet study rooms and a teen area will be added. The library will get all new furniture, carpet, and paint. And the room on the second floor that leads to the outside terrace will have a new purpose and new name, the Olsen Room-a quiet wing for gathering, for reading and for study.
