All 14 branches of Whitman County Library will close August 2-8 for annual maintenance. During the weeklong closure, special projects will be performed that are difficult to complete when the library is open including technology maintenance, carpet cleaning, painting, and general building upkeep.
Staff will also use that week to prepare for a “garage sale” in The Center in Colfax. The sale is planned for August 27-28.
During the library’s weeklong closure, due dates for library materials have been extended. Book drops will remain open in all locations for customer convenience. Access to the library’s catalog, downloadable eBooks and audiobooks, Beanstack app to track summer reading, Rural Heritage digital photo collection, and other online resources will be available right here on our website.
Free public wi-fi will be available outside every library location during the closure. Patrons needing computer access during that week are encouraged to contact the library prior to the closure to check out a laptop and hotspot for home use.
