Snohomish County Sheriff Ty Trenary has thanked Sno-Isle Libraries for the loan of two trucks that were used for storage of personal items recovered from the March 22 Oso landslide. The massive slide claimed the lives of 43 people and buried Highway 530.
In a letter to Executive Director Jonalyn Woolf-Ivory, Trenary wrote that “hundreds of items belonging to victims of the SR 530 Slide have been recovered, cleaned and returned to family members of the victims and the significant impact of those items on the families cannot be overstated.”
The loan of the trucks was suggested by Jeanne Crisp, Sno-Isle Libraries director of technical services and facilities.
“Like many others in the region, Sno-Isle staff wanted to help those affected by the landslide,” Crisp said. “Fortunately we were able to make two contributions: loaning two vehicles for the storage of recovered materials, and enhancing Internet service at our Darrington Library during the crisis. So many gave so much more.”
