Whitman County Library: Phase 3 update

June 9, 2020

While Whitman County has moved to Phase 3 of Governor Inslee's plan for reopening, The Washington Department of Health has instructed libraries to wait for additional Safe Start guidelines specific to library operations before opening buildings to the public.

Curbside pickup of books, movies and other materials will begin on Friday, June 12 at Whitman County branches. Items can also be mailed directly to patron's homes and all book drops are now open. Local library officials are following state and CDC guidelines to ensure the safety of all staff and customers including the quarantining of library materials for 72 hours before re-circulating.

Summer Reading programs are also under way for all ages. Reading logs, activities-to-go, and online programs vary by location so contact your branch by phone during their regularly scheduled hours.

For more information on requesting materials to be picked up curbside, Summer Reading programs, or branch hours and contact information, visit www.whitco.lib.wa.us, call 509-397-4366 or email info@whitco.lib.wa.us
