Penny Drive at Palouse Library

Penny Drive Raises Over $650 for WCL!

Friends of Whitman County Library collected $669 in coins and dollars during the 2021 Penny Drive in celebration of National Library Week in April. Each library branch designated a special project for the money collected, with funds being used for everything from Summer Reading STEAM bags to library projects.

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries across the country. Whitman County Library began commemorating the event with a Penny Drive in 2006 with outstanding participation from all 14 library locations.
