Sno-Isle Libraries closed Monday
All Sno-Isle Libraries facilities will be closed Monday for a day of staff training. Online services at sno-isle.org that do not require library staff assistance will be available. All Sno-Isle Libraries facilities, including its 23 community libraries, bookmobile and the service center, will resume normal schedules Tuesday.
Every other year, all Sno-Isle Libraries employees gather for a day of training. While regular training for employees does occur at other times, this one day is the only time that all Sno-Isle Libraries employees from all facilities across Snohomish and Island counties have an opportunity to gather in one place.
The last all-staff training day occurred in 2017. This year, staff are scheduled to gather at the Lynnwood Convention Center.
