Camano Library grand opening

The Camano Island Library is opening Saturday with a ceremony at 9:30 a.m. at 848 N.

The space is larger and the collection of books, computers and furniture also has expanded. There’s a children’s room, reading room and a multi-purpose room. The library will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, and from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays. The library will be closed Sundays.
