Camano Island Library featured at the Washington State Library!

The Washington State Library features a continuing education program online called First Tuesdays, from 9-10 AM on, you guessed it, the First Tuesday of the month. On May 5, the feature presentation is us, the Camano Island Library Pilot Project. The topic is all about our innovative "bookstore marketing" approach to library service. We'll be wired for sound as we present a Powerpoint look at our branch and our sister "browsing branch" in Clinton, and after the live program, the archive will be available online to listen to. Check it out at First Tuesdays.

It's not all Johnny Depp

Pirates have been in the news a lot lately, and unfortunately, they don't act anything like Johnny Depp's Jack Sparrow character from the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies.

Pirates have been mythologized over the years, and of course, much of how we think about pirates is based on Hollywood fiction. Walking the plank? Sorry. Buried treasure? Nope. But don't take my word for it, matey. Check out these books for the REAL story!
