Whitman County Library levy

We are writing to urge you to support Whitman County Library’s bid for the levy restoration. The vote is on February 13 and your support is needed to ensure the programs our library provides can continue in our communities.

Our family moved to the town of Endicott just over seven years ago from the Minneapolis area of Minnesota. Moving to a small town from a big city was a dramatic shift and we have come to love it. One of the reasons why is our local WCL branch in Endicott. Each of our three children has been enriched through programming at the Library. They have been exposed to insects and robots, hands-on math and of course reading.

When we think about all that is offered through the Endicott branch and multiply that by the 14 locations throughout Whitman County, it’s incredible to think about how much the WCL enhances our area. It’s not surprising that over the course of the past year, the children and teen programs had 23,475 attendees.

A levy restoration of $0.04 per $1,000.00 is a small price for the services we so greatly benefit from our local libraries.
