Thank you for your generous support of Library Giving Day!

We love our community!  Thank you for your donations totaling 12,063.60!  Our goal for the day was $10,000, but you exceeded our expectations.  Funds will be used to augment library services including acquisitions of 5 wifi hotspots for checkout by library users. 

We want to thank Asotin County Library Foundation, Clarkston Rotary, Twin Rivers Bank, Retired Teachers of Asotin County/Pomeroy, and several individuals who contributed matching funds totaling $2450.  We appreciate the support of IdaVend, Nelly Broadcasting and The Daily Fly who publicized the event.

Book Club Kits Are Here!

Let us help support your book club by providing multiple copies of books and discussion questions!

We have collected a wide-range of discussable books in great condition and put them in a canvas bag available for book clubs to borrow. We’ve included a folder with discussion questions and information about the author to encourage conversation among club members.

There will be at least 5 copies of the book in each kit, but most have kits have 10 book copies. Some kits will include an audiobook too! There are currently 11 kits to choose from and we plan to add more.
