Backpacks are NOW available for patron checkout to encourage outdoor activity!
Hiking, Birding, and Fishing Backpacks are now available for checkout from Whitman County Library as part of the Bonnie Bell collection. The three outdoor themed backpacks were developed as a way of encouraging participation in outdoor activities and were made possible by donations from Maribeth Kjack, the Whitman County Parks Department and the Tom Bihn Company.
HIKE, FISH, WALK, BIRD…at the library!
The fishing backpack includes a fishing pole, tackle box with fishing gear, bait, extra line, first aid kit, and fishing related kid’s books.
The hiking backpack is filled with maps and trail guides of our area, plant and bird watching manuals, children’s books on hiking, a compass, binoculars, and a first aid kit.
For more information on these backpacks, please contact Shirley Cornelius at Whitman County Library (509) 397-4366.
