We would like to invite you to a reception in honor of Gerry Tollman on Tuesday, May 23 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the library. Gerry will be retiring from library service after many years of dedication. Please stop by to wish her well.

Did you realize that the library had a read and return rack? This is a section of paperbacks books that have been donated and that can be taken out and returned at your convenience. Next time you need reading material but are not sure if you can return as soon as you would like, check it out.

Also, how many times have you read a book with a specific theme or plot and really wanted to read something else that was similar. NoveList is an online resource that is available at that can guide you to similar books, authors, etc.. This database is purchased by the Wyoming Legislature so you will need your library card and PIN to log-on. If you would like more information be sure to stop by or give us a call.

If you didn’t get a survey in the mail, please call or stop by the library – your input is very important as the board plans for the future of library service.
