Find Your Voice! Summer Reading 2023 Trailer

Is your voice... by Stayton Public Library


NYT Bestselling author Marie Bostwick to Speak at Stayton Public Library
STAYTON, Ore. -- The Stayton Public Library is excited to announce a visit featuring New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Marie Bostwick on Tuesday, June 20, 2023 at 6:00 p.m. in the E. G. Siegmund Meeting Room. There will be a reception accompanying the event with an opportunity to purchase her latest novel and have it signed.

Marie Bostwick is the bestselling author of novels about family, relationships, and women’s friendships. Her latest novel, Esme Cahill Fails Spectacularly, releases May 30, 2023 and is about the meaning of family and the places we call home. Drawing on her lifelong love of quilting and themes of special relevance to modern women, Marie’s Cobbled Court Quilt series has gained a dedicated following among quilters as well as those who’ve never threaded and needle and don’t plan to try.

Marie lives in Washington state with her husband, Brad. When not writing, she enjoys quilting, reading, cooking, and spending time with family and friends. Marie travels extensively, speaking at libraries, bookstores, quilt guilds, and at quilt shows.

Stayton Public Library by the numbers

Check us out! April 23rd-29th is National Library Week and this year it is celebrated with the theme "There's More to the Story." 


Most people know about the wealth of stories available at the library, from picture books and large print to audiobooks and ebooks. But there's so much more to the story of libraries. 


Libraries are welcoming spaces that bring communities together for entertainment, education, and connection through book clubs, storytimes, movie nights, crafting classes, lectures, and more. And libraries play a critical role in the economic vitality of communities by providing internet and technology access, literacy skills, and support for job seekers, small businesses, and entrepreneurs.


To celebrate National Library Week we're showing you a snapshot of the Library by the numbers between July 2022 - March 2023.
