Reminder: WCL Penny Drive is Underway!

Wanted: Pennies, Dimes, and Dollars Too! The Whitman County Library System holds its annual Penny Drive now through April 26!

Each of the 14 library branches collects money to fund educational programs or projects that are vital to their location. The WCL Penny Drive is held in honor of National Library Week (April 9 - 15). 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, treats and the ever popular, Reading Bear.

Thank you for donating to our kids' programs!
For more information about the Penny Drive please contact: Sheri Miller at 509-397-4366
