Building for the Future

With an eye to the future, staff at Washington County Library are continually assessing and re-imagining the building facilities across our seven branches. In 2020, the county completed major projects at Wildwood Library in Mahtomedi and Valley Library in Lakeland.

Residents can get building project updates on this page, or by following the library on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram at @WashCoLib.

  1. Oakdale Library
  2. Park Grove Library
  3. R.H. Stafford Library

In December 2021, the Washington County Board of Commissioners approved a Capital Improvement Plan that includes updates to Oakdale Library from 2022-2026. Plans for these improvements include:

  • 2023: Complete interior painting at Oakdale Library.
  • 2024: Complete parking lot maintenance and repair work.
  • 2025: Complete roof work, replace the library’s automation system.

County staff expect that the planned repairs will reduce operations and maintenance costs at the library by improving energy efficiency and reducing maintenance service calls.
