WOODLAND — The Fort Vancouver Regional Library Foundation recently received a $25,000 grant from the Honorable Frank L. and Arlene G. Price Foundation. The grant, awarded to support construction of a larger, more modern public library in Woodland, was presented at a FVRL Foundation board of directors meeting. The library foundation has been working with local businesses and Friends of the Woodland Community Library to raise private funds for the building, which is estimated to cost $5 million. “Residents in the Woodland area desperately need a new library. The house that currently serves as the Woodland Community Library is over 100 years old. It’s too small, and it doesn’t have enough space for the things the Woodland community needs, like a community room, study spaces, and access to the information and technology resources that most public libraries offer their communities,” Rick Smithrud, executive director of Fort Vancouver Regional Library Foundation, said in a news release. “We are deeply grateful to the Price Foundation for this very thoughtful grant.” For more information about the Woodland Library Building Project, visit fvrl.org/imagineWoodland or call 360-906-4700.
