The Spokane County Library District is expanding it's Spokane Valley presence with a new so called " express " branch at the Spokane Valley Mall. This new Library within the mall would likely open sometime around the end of Spring, first part of Summer this year in leased space. The Library will occupy the space that was last used as a store called Red Fox on the second floor nearby the Macy's store.
The Library District has also been in and out the news lately for their plans to replace the current main Spokane Valley Library on E. Main, just west of Pines, with a new library campus along Sprague nearby from where crews are constructing a new city hall for the City of Spokane Valley. The Library District says this new express branch does not replace their desire to build that new building and talks are ongoing on just how to do it.
The new express library at Spokane Valley Mall would stock a smaller selection of books, likely only the more popular and would allow patrons to download books onto tablets and e-readers. Computers will also be available to allow guests to browse the internet and participate in the library's computer based programs. Just like other library's a limited number of staff ( no mention of how many ) will be available for questions / help.
