RFP Architects for Library Project

The Camanche City Council has approved funding for the Camanche Public Library to seek a Request for Proposal from qualified architecture firms to submit for a proposed expansion of the Camanche Public Library. 


The Camanche Public Library has grown in use and is exceeding its capacity to address patron and community needs. Our library is the smallest D size library building in the state. The Library Board has requested funding for a architecture proposal to expand the current structure and have a selected plan be placed on a 2025 referndum ballot to borrow funding for the purpose of expanding the building. This debt would not take effect until fiscal year 2027 when the Washington Boulevard debt falls off of the levy. The proposal would replace the Washington Boulevard bond so that the debt portion of the levy remains the same. 


All interested architecture firms should follow the RFP directions. Any questions about the RFP can be sent to the Library Director Anna Evans.
