Capital Investment Program

Find out how your library is maintaining its capital assets.

Plan

In 2019, the King County Library System (KCLS) started a five-year plan to maintain assets. This plan is called a Capital Investment Program (CIP). The CIP covers major repair and replacement of assets including buildings and vehicles.

Maintaining these assets makes sure that:

  • Libraries continue to be welcoming places for generations to come.
  • Service facilities are safe workplaces.
  • Vehicles are in good working order.
