Two groups have worked closely on behalf of the Coupeville Library: the Coupeville Library Board and the Vote Yes Twice Coupeville Library! Committee.
In their honor, the Central Whidbey community recently received the Distinguished Service Award from Washington Library Friends and Trustees Association.
Members of the Coupeville Library Board include Joann Roomes, Nancy Tatman-Bailey, Jim Cavanaugh, Doris Randall and Jim Short.
In January 2008, the Vote Yes Twice Coupeville Library! Committee was formed, beginning an eight-month journey to educate the Central Whidbey community on the need for a larger library through a grassroots campaign. Both the Library Capital Facilities Area formation and the bond measures were approved in August 2008.
“In these tough economic times, Central Whidbey’s unique ability to rise to the challenge, and through a vote of the community, shows us how much they value the services of the Sno-Isle Libraries in Coupeville,” stated a news release.
