The Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation is a philanthropic arm of the library district in Washington state's Snohomish and Island counties, working to " extend the library's reach by supporting library programs, services, and events, funding demonstration libraries in communities with limited service, and investing in capital improvements throughout the library district," board president Luke Distelhorst says in a press release.
It's "a big leap forward" to have "broad representation from Island and Snohomish counties" on the board, he adds, noting the foundation is on track to receive a record amount of donations and bequests this year.
The eight new board members hail from Snohomish and Island counties and include a former judge for Indiana's 9th Judicial Circuit, a program manager and content designer for Boeing in Everett, and a geophysicist for an oil company, among others.
"Doubling the size of our board with broad representation from Island and Snohomish counties is a big leap forward," Distelhorst says.
"Our board will continue to fundraise and advocate for the library district as we grow the impact of philanthropy on Sno-Isle Libraries' programs and the communities we serve."
