The Ferndale Library Fund is a vital community partnership for the Whatcom Community Foundation. The Fund was initially established in late 2005 by an anonymous donor to support efforts to replace the old library with a new facility. The current building is 15 years old and has limited square footage to serve existing needs and will be unable to meet the future demand being placed on it by a rapidly growing community.
The Foundation was selected by the donor to manage their community investment because we have the capacity to provide the services they needed. We also have a track record of community partnerships such as the Depot Market, the Fairhaven Village Green and the South Fork Community Fund and a commitment to helping people ensure that their dreams become a reality.
The Foundation has been participating on the steering committee charged with making this dream of a new library become a reality along with the City of Ferndale, Whatcom County Library System and the Library Task Force and Friends of the Ferndale Library. We look forward to working on this long-term project and seeing it succeed.
