The Rosalia and Oakesdale branches of Whitman County Library will continue to keep their doors open to the public for additional hours each week thanks to the support of The Palouse Wind Farm and its owner Onward Energy.
The total donation was $7,000 with $3,500 going to each community library. The donation will be used to fund extra open hours on Tuesdays in Rosalia and Wednesdays in Oakesdale through the next year.
In addition to supporting more library hours, The Palouse Wind Farm provided matching funds to the Town of Oakesdale in 2020 to improve the front entrance of the Oakesdale Library. That project is expected to be completed this fall.
Rosalia Library hours are Tuesdays 10am-2pm and 3-5pm, Thursdays 3-7pm, and Saturdays 10am-2pm. Oakesdale Library hours are Mondays 1-6pm and Wednesdays 11am-4pm. For more information, contact Kylie Fullmer, Whitman County Library Director at 509-397-4366.
