When I think of Sno-Isle Libraries and the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation, the word that comes to mind is “community.”  In over 20 years of involvement with Sno-Isle, that is what I have most appreciated. Each of the 23 libraries is an important partner with the people and organizations in their local community. Sno-Isle Libraries has supported schools and families through the Third-Graders Read Together program, a critical age to build excitement about reading leading to future success academically and in life.  Community-wide reading through book discussion groups and Whidbey Reads, now in its 20th year, brings community members together to connect over books. The Trudy Sundberg Lecture Series with the support of the Foundation and many community sponsors has brought an eminent speaker each year to inspire and educate residents. Public Internet access, online databases, children’s story times, and legal, medical, and consumer information are just a few of the free services available to all. I am pleased to provide continued support for our libraries.

To those who know us, it comes as no surprise that our family are longtime supporters of the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation and the 23 libraries it works to support. After all, we are lifelong readers and learners, and that’s what libraries are for, aren’t they? That – and so much more. Libraries archive our history. They level the playing field by providing equal access to information for everyone. They are centers of our communities – a major resource for early childhood education, a safe gathering space for people of all ages, the one place that guarantees free public internet access to those with limited or no access. We proudly give both time and treasure to the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation to help support programs and projects that will ensure that these critical community resources will not only survive—they will thrive.
