New at the Walla Walla Public Library

Despite the library's temporary closure there are many online resources available to the public, said Library Technician Emiley Jensen in a release. The library, at 238 E. Alder St., will continue to provide many of the digital services, such as eBooks and audio books, online access to newspapers and research databases.

During the closure, anyone who does not have a current library account can self-register at for access to these online resources.

For those who have borrowed physical library materials, the library has extended loan periods during this time. Drop boxes will be closed — do not return items to the library until it is again open. Any fines accrued during this time will be waived.

Messages and questions may be sent via the library website or call 509-394-6704.
