The Mill Creek library desperately needs a new home. There is limited parking, limited floorspace, and only two comfortable chairs for reading. Lynnwood, Mukilteo, Edmonds, etc all have wonderful and spacious libraries. Here's our chance to have a library worthy of our beautiful city: Move it to the newly vacated Safeway on 132nd and Bothell Everett Hwy.
This building is currently for lease and boasts 55,000 square feet. Our library requires 40,000 sq ft and the excess could be used by the Mill Creek Senior Center which is currently poorly located in a warehouse-style building. The two facilities would be wonderful neighboring resources. In fact, over time all of the other mall shops could become resource and service-oriented businesses. The mall is already perfectly named the Gateway Center.
