Spokane Public Library suspends curbside pickup amid hazardous air quality
SPOKANE, Wash. — Spokane Public Library is suspending curbside pickup for the week due to hazardous air quality.
The service will resume Sunday, September 22, so long as the air quality improves.
This follows several school districts and businesses who have also opted to close their doors as Spokane sits through nearly four days of smoky skies.
The hazardous air quality comes from a plume of smoke from the combined wildfires in Washington, Oregon and California. A cold front was expected to reduce the smoke on Monday, but did not do much more than stir it around.
