Episode 7: How strong roots grow into local leaders

    The Check It Out! podcast with (from left): co-host and Foundation Director Paul Pitkin, co-host and Communication Director Ken Harvey, audio engineer and marketing specialist Deborah Tahara, Foundation President Terry Lippincott and Board of Trustees President Marti Anamosa.

    It seems like Marti Anamosa and Terry Lippincott grew up together, it just happened to be in separate parts of the country.

    Marti is a native of Albuquerque, N.M. and now a Whidbey Island resident, while Terry is from Everett and now resides in Snohomish. They recount their early days from a simpler time, how each came to love reading and how that put them on paths to significant leadership roles supporting Sno-Isle Libraries.

    Lippincott serves as President of the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation, the same position that Anamosa held before joining the Sno-Isle Libraries Board of Trustees where she now serves as president.
