Homebound Program Serves Honored Citizen: Author Alter Wiener

The librarians behind the WCCLS Homebound Services program feel honored to serve 350 locals with the ease of mail delivery of books, movies, audio books and all varieties of library media. They have also been privileged to register a famous, local author into the program – Alter Wiener.

Author of From a Name to a Number, and a native of Poland, Alter has called Washington County home for the past ten years. To date he has stood in front of 976 audiences throughout the Pacific Northwest imploring us to never forget the Holocaust. Surviving five concentration camps from the ages of 15-18 years old, Alter is now 90. WCCLS is pleased to offer both Alter’s memoir From a Name to a Number and a link to a video of his final public speaking engagement as searchable items in our library catalog. Alter’s testament is imperative!
