Looking for safe and spooktacular activities to do with your family in the spirit of Halloween? Several branches of Whitman County Library are offering all treats, no tricks for families the last week of October.

Keeping up with tradition, Oakesdale Library will be handling out candy with other local businesses on Friday, Oct. 30 at 1 p.m.
