MARYSVILLE APPEAL-DEMOCRAT -- Stacy Zwald-Costello becoming the new Colusa County Library director last week was not just a thrilling happenstance for the 35-year-old wife and mother of a toddler. “It’s a bit serendipitous,” Zwald-Costello said. Zwald-Costello, who was born in Colusa, had a promising career in the history department of the Oakland Museum of California and again at Stanford University’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Research and Education Institute when she set her sights on heading a library in a small community. She received her Master’s degree in American history from San Francisco State, emphasizing race relations in the 20th century, as served as assistant editor working on the Martin Luther King Papers Project. “As much as I loved research, I knew that I would rather be providing information to other people rather than receiving information,” Zwald-Costello said.
