Library Snapshot Day

Earlier this month, in honor of National Library Week, Whitman County Library celebrates Library Snapshot Day! We wanted to share with our community “a day in the life” of their library. Browse the photos below to get a behind the scenes peak at your local library.

A collage of our wonderful library staff working every day to provide you with the best service possible.

Did you know we deliver books to retirement homes and assisted living communities in Colfax & Garfield? Here is Kathy Carr loading up books to safely deliver to residents this week.

This is our mending department. Shown here is our book press, used for fixing binding and loose pages.

New book ? If you've been binging "Bridgerton" on Netflix or looking for the perfect historical romance, check out the "Bridgerton" book series.

Amy Ferguson is loading up the seed library for spring planting ? Seeds for vegetables, herbs, and flowers are available for gardeners free of charge at Colfax Library or Albion Library!

Sheri Miller, Youth Services Manager, is getting WCL ready for summer reading: Tails & Tales ????

Here's Lisa checking in DVDs and getting them shelved for our patrons to browse. Remember, our branches we are open for in-person and curbside service! ??

Do you ever wonder how books get from one library to another? All 13 branch libraries come to Colfax for branch visits monthly or bimonthly to trade out their books. Additionally if you request a book, we will mail it to your library branch. ?? Here is Tami Schwartz from LaCrosse Library doing her branch visit.

Kathy Buchholtz, Acquisitions & Whitman Rural Heritage Collection, is cataloging some new books for you ???
