Get that library fine off your chest and do a good deed at the same time! The 19th annual library food drive drive runs the entire month of February at all 14 branch locations. This highly successful program allows library patrons to bring nonperishable food and toiletry items into any library branch and waive up to $10 in outstanding library fines. Those who visit the library and do not have fines are also encouraged to make a contribution. All items will be given to the food bank used in the community where they were collected.

Last year, Whitman County Library collected nearly $600 worth of food and toiletry items. Many food bank clients receive large heating bills in February and it is wonderful that the library’s food drive allows local agencies to put something extra in their grocery box. For more information please call Branch Coordinator, Catalina Flores, at (509) 397-4366
