Upcoming Library Closure

All 14 branches of Whitman County Library will close August 6-12 for their annual maintenance week. During the closure, a number of projects will be performed that are difficult to complete when the library is open including new carpet in the Palouse Branch and the installation of gallery lights in The Center at the Colfax Library.

During the weeklong closure, due dates for library materials have been extended and no late fines will be charged. Bookdrops will remain open in all locations for customer convenience. Access to the library's catalog, downloadable audio and e-books, Rural Heritage and other resources will still be available by visiting the library's website at www.whitco.lib.wa.us.

Libraries affected by the closure are: Albion, Colfax, Colton, Endicott, Farmington, Garfield, LaCrosse, Malden, Oakesdale, Palouse, Rosalia, St. John, Tekoa, and Uniontown. Residents may call the library at 397-4366 or toll-free at 1-877-733-3375 for information, details regarding the closure or renewal of materials.
