Where’s Ruthie?



Ruthie is our summer reading mascot. Each week she will be in a window of a business somewhere in the center of Whitman. Take a walk around town to find her. Once you’ve seen her, stop by the library and fill out a raffle ticket to win a prize. You may enter the raffle once a day.


Congratulations to Erin, 11 who spotted Ruthie at the Flying Pig Emporium last week and won our raffle. Can you spot her this week?


Congratulations to Brady, 7 who spotted Ruthie at Duval’s Pharmacy the week of July 6.


Ruthie was hiding at Uncle David’s Burgers and Pizza the week of June 30. Congratulations to Payton, 6 found her and won our raffle!

Playaways: What’s New in the Children’s Room

The Whitman Library recently purchased a small collection of Playaways for children and young adults. Playaways are a new format of audiobook. Playaways are a portable listening device pre-loaded with a book. Playaways can be plugged into headphones, speakers, or a car. Playaways provide all the benefits of being read aloud to, but are simple enough for children to work themselves, without any extra technology needed.

Stop by the library to check them out today!
