Colfax Library’s next book club is Monday, Aug. 30 at 5:30 pm in Schmuck Park. Read “The Sun Does Shine” by Anthony Ray Hinton, about his 30 years spent on Alabama’s death row before being proved innocent. All adults are welcome, even if you haven’t read the book.

Finally, St. John Library is hosting a Summer Art and Writing Contest. This month’s theme is “fantasy.” Stories and photos can be emailed to or dropped off during open hours. Winners will be chosen by drawing on Monday, Aug. 30.

All grab-n-go programs are first come, first serve. For questions about these or other adult Summer Reading events, please contact Sarah Phelan-Blamires at Whitman County Library at or 509-397-4366.
