Sno-Isle Libraries encompasses two counties just north of Seattle—Snohomish County and Island County.

Just 15 miles north of Seattle, Snohomish County features a combination of suburban and rural living in a beautiful natural setting. The county stretches west from the beaches of Puget Sound and north and east to the Cascade Mountains. Communities range from bustling suburbs to quiet, small towns.

A short ferry ride across Puget Sound from south Snohomish County or a scenic drive from north Snohomish County, Island County consists of two islands—Whidbey and Camano. Island County features lovely beaches, quiet pasturelands, historic towns and unique shopping opportunities.

Hello, I'm Maria.

Ask me about:

"I work in the morning, and we are often very busy with lots of customers coming in. I've never been bored -- there's always something to do. While I'm shelving books, customers will come up to you and ask for particular materials, and we send them to the right place. In the morning, we pull materials on hold for customers or other libraries, and straighten up. We get it all done before the doors open."


"I'm part-time, so I only work 15 hours. What drew me was the ability to pick the shifts and days I wanted to work. My supervisor works with me so I can get the shift I want or need."


"My daughter signed up to volunteer for Sno-Isle after visiting a career fair. Since I had to drive her anyway, I ended up volunteering. After two years of volunteering, a Page I position opened up and my supervisor encouraged me to apply. And I got it!"


"Your ideas really do matter at Sno-Isle. When I was a Page I, I thought if I could just learn to process returned materials, then I could help out the PSA's when they were swamped. I talked it over with my supervisor, and she thought it was a good idea. She took a lot of notes and we discussed creating a new position -- a Page II -- and what that position would entail. When the position was finally created, I was the first Page II in the system. People said I had fortitude!"


"I finished reading Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyers. This was the last of the Twilight series. Even though it is in our Teen section, it kept me on the edge of my seat. You experience first love, lots of teenage angst, vampires, werewolves, bad guys, good guys, life decisions. Without giving away the ending, I think there could be a fifth book!"


Library on Wheels

The Sno-Isle Libraries Bookmobile is a friendly little community all of its own, offering Snohomish County residents who can't get to a library building access to over 2,000 of the most popular items in our collection, including books, music CDs, DVD's, audio books and magazines, and public Internet. The Library on Wheels department also delivers rotating monthly collections of library items to licensed childcare centers, Head Start and ECEAP programs, assisted living facilities and senior housing areas. They bring story-time presentations to groups of children, and provide personalized service to around 250 homebound customers.
