The Whitman County Library System holds its annual Penny Drive April 12-April 30 in honor of National Library Week, which runs April 12-18. Each of the fourteen library branches collects money to fund programs or projects that are vital to their location.
First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is an observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries across the country. Whitman County Library celebrates the contributions of its loyal customers and dedicated staff during this special annual event.
Many school classrooms and local daycares help to gather coins and compete for an ice cream party. The celebration is hosted by the Friends of Whitman County Library featuring games and the ever popular, Reading Bear.
