Becky.jpeg Library 1 : Becky White

Originally from Pennsylvania, Becky joined the Library September 2014. Becky loves to promote literacy and serve a diverse cross-section of our community that shares in common a love of reading.

"My favorite part of the library is working with kids of all ages; nurturing their love of books and reading, while creating opportunities for the youth of our community. I also enjoy the challenge of grant writing and finding funding for special programs."

As the founder of Clatskanie Stone Soup, when Becky is not at the library, she can be found creating community partnerships that provide valuable social services to all members, as well as visitors, of our community. Becky's hobbies include; organic gardening, hiking, camping and knitting. 

A few of Becky's favorite books are; "Where the Wild Things Are", "Stone Soup", "Jonathan Livingston Seagull", and "Another Roadside Attraction"

Originally from Minnesota, Terrie joined the Library August 2015. Terrie is the organizer of the Adult Book Club. One of Terrie's favorite authors is Stephen King. Terrie loves helping the Patrons of the Library and goes the extra mile to make sure that avid readers have books, researching their book history, to find books they have yet to read from our collection, even lending her own copies from her car, which we have lovingly dubbed "Terrie's Book Mobile". 

 Library Clerk : Melanie Simmons

Locally raised, Melanie joined the Library April 2019. Melanie's most favorite aspect of the Library is reading stories and creating fun crafts with the children during Story Time and Summer Reading Programs. Assisting Patrons of all ages find what they are looking for, " I want every visitor to the library, to leave with a good book and keep them coming back for more."

"I love a good mystery and my most favorite author is Agatha Christie, she just delivers in a way that keeps you on the edge of your seat and anticipating the turn of the next page!" 

When not working at the Library, Melanie can be found spending time with her family and being outdoors.
