Candace Jarrett grew up in Snohomish, the Carnegie Library was her favorite place to find books, meet friends and sit on the bench under the beautiful old cherry tree. We have a wonderful new library now, but restoring the Carnegie building and grounds to their pre-1968 beauty would be a tremendous asset to our town. As an E.S.L. teacher working in other cities and countries she has seen the value of preserving historic buildings and open places while providing public programs and events that can draw together a community. Free Public Libraries are one of the most egalitarian and welcoming institutions ever created and the Carnegie Foundation’s mission to create an education center and continue that tradition of community involvement is one that is both important and exciting.

 Mug Shot of Anne Eason

Anne Eason has been a resident of the City of Snohomish since 1965 and community involvement has always been a top priority for her. At the request of Mayor Payson Peterson, November 1970, she was sworn into office on the Snohomish City Council and was elected to office in May 1971 and November 1973, and served a total of six years. It was during these years that the form of government of the City of Snohomish was passed by the voters (Resolution 288), and Ordinance No. 1185 creating the Snohomish Historical Commercial District and Snohomish Residential District was passed. In June 1991, she was appointed to the Snohomish Planning Commission and served for three years.

Because she frequented the Carnegie Library during her adolescent years in Bellingham, Washington, it was only natural for her to introduce her three children to the Snohomish Carnegie Library when she moved to her present location with her late husband, Larry Eason. During the years that she served on the City Council, Council meetings were moved from the Council Chamber at First Street City Hall to the Carnegie Library Basement. Many issues were addressed and decisions were made, with regard to downtown historic preservation. Other involvements throughout these years have been through the Snohomish School District, St. Michael’s Parish, civic events, PEO, and Tillicum Kiwanis. She was employed at Monroe School District and has since been retired for sixteen years. In addition, spending time with herimmediate family has always been top priority!

For Anne, it was natural to accept the invitation to join the Snohomish Preservation Committee at its inception in 2004, and continue to serve until completion in 2005. The Washington State Secretary of State’s Office issued a Certification of Incorporation for the Snohomish Carnegie Foundation effective, June 21, 2005. She was one of the four initial Board of Directors at the time this certificate was issued and continues to serve as Treasurer of the Board.

It is exciting for Anne to be a part of this significant project to revitalize and preserve the building and grounds in order to provide the Snohomish Carnegie Educational Center for the citizens of Snohomish and neighboring areas to enjoy as the recognized landmark it once was and will be for many years to come.
