Valerie McBeth, center, cut the ribbon at Discover Birch Bay Days on August 28. McBeth has been a librarian at various locations within and outside Washington, and is the director of the Lummi Library, Northwest Indian College, and chair of the Birch Bay Chamber of Commerce’s Library Committee. Billy Brown, left, and Ruth Higgins, right, are also pictured. Several members of the community donated their skills and creativity to produce the first of many small library boxes around the bay. Anyone interested in donating books, building skills, materials or money, or becoming a committee member, can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
