July 21, 2022
COLFAX —Whitman County Rural Library District’s new director Cody Allen is no newcomer to the Palouse.
Born and raised in Lewiston, Allen began his career at Clarkston’s Asotin County Library before attending Whitworth College in Spokane, where he worked in the school’s library.
After college, Allen spent seven years working for the Billings Public Library in Montana, where Allen says he gained an appreciation for the profession.
“It was really just the work itself that I really love,” said Allen, “I really liked being part of the community and serving people.”
