EVERETT — Constructing a bigger, better South Everett library may start next spring, thanks to a funding allocation set to be approved in August.
The City Council will be asked to authorize earmarking $600,000 toward
designing an expanded Evergreen Branch library at its Aug. 3 meeting. The city intends to ask for construction bids in early 2017 to make the long-awaited expansion a reality.
