Colusa County Welcomes New Librarian


Stacey Zwald-Costello was recently named the Colusa County Free Library Librarian.

Costello, born in Colusa County, moved away as a young child but has many memories of visiting family.

“I have many memories of Colusa County growing up – we would often visit,” said Costello, “It feels good to be back ‘home.’”

Prior to being named the County Librarian, Costello worked as an assistant editor with the Martin Luther King, Jr. Research and Education Institute at Stanford University and worked as the Curatorial Assistant in the History Department at the Oakland Museum of California.

Costello holds a Master’s Degree in Library and Information Science from San Jose State University, and a B.A. and an M.A. in American History from St. Mary’s College of California and San Francisco State respectively.

“I look forward to working with the community and raising my daughter in a place that has meant so much to me,” said Costello.

While finishing up her first week on the job, Costello is working towards familiarizing herself with the library, its patrons, and its programs.

“I hope everyone will be patient with me as I learn the ropes,” Costello added.

As Costello builds her future at the Colusa County Library, she is also celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Colusa County Library.

“It is really exciting that our library is celebrating its 100th year; our library is an excellent resource for our community,” said Costello, “I invite everyone to stop in and check out a book, at the Colusa County Library.”

The Colusa County Library and the Friends of the Colusa County Library are currently planning a quarterly events, in celebration of the 100th year.

“We are planning an official reception in September with anticipation that the California State Librarian and California Governor will attend.” said Nancy Newlin, Committee Member of the Friends of the Colusa County Library.

As the committee finalizes its plans, more information will be available during that time.
