Free Face Masks for the Public as the Library Prepares for Reopening

 

Free face masks available:

 
Pick up a free, reusable facemask curbside from any branch of Whitman County Library, provided by Washington State Emergency Management. Masks are adult sized and intended for lower income residents or those who’ve struggled to locate them. Contact us to reserve cloth masks for you and your family!
 

Grants & Donations Respond to COVID-19 and Prepare for Reopening:

 

Besides this donation of masks, the library has received a number of grants and donations to better assist the community and also, in preparation for when the library is allowed to reopen. Opening is still pending the release of Safe Start Guidelines.

WCL Browse for You Service

Do you normally pick your library books or movies by browsing the shelves? Not sure what titles to request now that the library doors are closed?   Let Whitman County Library do the browsing for you! 

Simply call your library branch and let us know what you like to read/watch or let us surprise you! Librarians will gather up to 10 titles (card limits and restrictions do apply) for you and call when they are ready for curbside pickup.  Take the items home, keep the ones you want, return the ones you don’t to our bookdrop. 

Need a stack of picture books, beginning readers, chapter books, or young adult novels?  The Browse for You service is available for kids and teens too!  Let us know child’s age and what they like to read.


For additional information, branch library hours, or fun online program details visit www.whitco.lib.wa.us or call toll free 877-733-3375.
