Following a recent interior renovation, the Bonney Lake Pierce County Library incorporated a rotating community art display as part of the children’s area. Unveiled in February 2023, this display has featured student artwork as part of a partnership with two local school districts. In its second year, the display will expand to feature artists from a broader range of partnerships, including the community senior center and a local photography club.
Erin Muske is the Senior Librarian at the Bonney Lake Pierce County Library, where she manages a staff that loves both community engagement opportunities and mantis shrimp. A 16-year veteran of public library service, Erin returned to Washington in 2022 after almost two decades away and is enjoying experiencing all four seasons again. Aside from the library, her favorite places to be are at a park, on a trail or anywhere near the ocean.
