    What We Do

    Library Duties

    • Improvement Club members volunteer hours monthly to shelve and organize library materials.
    • There are monthly meetings held at the library to discuss ongoing projects and services.

    Outreach

    • The Welcome Baby Committee designs and assembles a gift packet of information on library services and other helpful resources for parents of babies born at Providence Mount Carmel Hospital. This outreach program is in support of the American Library Association Early Literacy Program.
    • Library books are delivered to and from the Pinewood Terrace, Parkview, and Buena Vista nursing homes, providing books and audiobooks for many of Colville’s senior citizens.

    Fundraising and Donations

    • Book Sales – Improvement Club members offer book sales using donated books and recycled library materials. The book sale proceeds help to support library services and programs such as the annual Summer Reading program.
    • The Memorial Fund, established in 1945, is comprised of donations made by patrons in honor of a loved one.

    To honor someone through a memorial to the Colville Public Library:

    1. Designate for whom the memorial is being made. Checks should be written to the ‘Colville Public Library Memorial Fund’.
    2. If desired, designate a type of book-audio book/e-book/ hardcopy; a specific title, or another item. A non-designated gift will be used where needed. For assistance, consult with the library manager. If a specific item is requested, an identification plate will recognize this.
    3. The name of the honoree will be written in the Honor Book; if the
      honoree is deceased, their name will be written in the Memorial Book. Both volumes are displayed in the library.

    The honoring gift may be delivered or mailed to:
