C4C is excited to announce a new board member—Lane Jacobson, owner of Paulina Springs Books—who will be helping us encourage a culture of bridge-building within Sisters Country.
Lane was born and raised in Mammoth Lakes, Calif., and from an early age had an appreciation for the sense of community that a small town can foster.
In 2012, Lane relocated to North Carolina to finish his degrees in English and Anthropology with UNC Chapel Hill. After graduating, Lane worked as a buyer and manager at Flyleaf Books in Chapel Hill. Last fall Lane relocated to Sisters and assumed ownership of Paulina Springs Books.
He currently serves on the American Booksellers Association's Committee on Diversity, which is focused on increasing diversity, equity and inclusion in the book and publishing industries. He is especially interested in sustainability practices and the intersection of culture, government and community.
Notes Lane: “I believe in the importance of organizations like C4C to maintain community, restore dialogue, and promote civility, especially in times of national and political division.”
Like many in Central Oregon, Lane is an avid climber, backpacker, fisher, and snowboarder.
Welcome to the community and to C4C, Lane.
