Vancouver Community Library permanently closed its 1007 E. Mill Plain Blvd. location on June 4. The closure will allow Fort Vancouver Regional Library District staff and professional movers to transfer the collection and staff work stations to the new building at 901 C St.

The library’s new location will open July 17.

The Mill Plain building, which has served as the main library’s home for 48 years, is slated to continue to house the library district’s consolidated operations, book processing, administration and Clark County bookmobile once the library space is vacated.
