Meet Matt: Matt May has been a resident of La Conner since August of 2012. He previously volunteered at the Mountlake Terrace Public Library before moving to Skagit County. Matt’s reading areas of interest are mostly non-fiction and graphic novels, but he tries to stay abreast of events in the fiction world as well. You’ll see his smile several days a week at the store where he shines in customer service. We love his willingness to pitch in and help wherever needed. Great to have you on board, Matt!

Beth Ensley

Meet Beth: Multi-talented Beth Ensley has been a resident of Skagit County since 1975. She loves historic non-fiction which is no surprise as she has also worked at the Skagit County Historical Museum. When she’s not reading five books at a time, Beth is an avid walker. If you’re looking for tips on great trails, she’ll point you to the best ones. We appreciate her knowledge and friendly demeanor. Thanks for being one of our treasured anchors, Beth!

Meet Janna: Our book guru and captain. Janna Gage is a true Skagit Valley pioneer. After growing up on the river, she lived in Bellingham, Seattle, the Midwest and Northern California before settling back in La Conner. A librarian (now retired) and author, she has long had a vision of creating a bookstore that showcases the Pacific Northwest and brings writers and community together. When she’s not busy ordering new books, stocking our shelves, meeting with authors, researching, writing or editing; you’ll find her at the Waterfront Cafe enjoying her favorite fish and chips.

Our website and social media is lovingly mastered by Jane Green.
