Rosalia Library expands hours thanks to Wind Farm donation

The Rosalia Branch of Whitman County Library is excited to announce expanded hours beginning September 3. Thanks to the generous support of The Palouse Wind Farm and its owner Novatus Energy new hours are being added each Tuesday from 3-5 P.M.

Branch Services Coordinator, Catalina Flores says, "2 hours per week may not seem like much but the impact on the community will be huge. Expanding hours allows us to provide even more programs and better access to materials and the computers." Last year, the Rosalia Library saw more than 2600 attendees at their programs, loaned 7700 items and the public computers were used 1840 times.

Novatus also donated to the Oakesdale Branch but the library district is still determining the best way to meet community needs with those funds. Total donation was $7000, $3500 to each community library.

The Palouse Wind Farm was honored as Library Supporter of the Month in 2014 and their commitment to the community and library has expanded through its new owner, Novatus Energy. From facility upgrades and expanded hours to children's technology and community programs, The Palouse Wind Farm has really impacted the Rosalia and Oakesdale Libraries and communities.

Starting September 3, Rosalia Library hours are Tuesdays 10 A.M. – 2 P.M. and 3 – 5 P.M., Thursdays 3-7 P.M. and Saturdays 10 A.M. – 2 P.M.
