The library will be closed on Monday, January 16, 2012 in honor of Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday and Wyoming Equality Day. Normal hours will resume at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, the 17th.

A three book discussion series begins on Monday, February 6 at 6 p.m. with the discussion of “Into Thin Air” by Jon Krakauer.

Stephen J. Cannell’s newest title is “Vigilante”. Lita Mendez was a thorn in the LAPD’s side so when she was found dead in her home, detectives Shane and Hitch feared the worst – that there’s a killer in their ranks. Outside the crime scene, Nixon Nash, the host of the hit reality show “Vigilante TV,” is dedicated to solving murders before the police can… but just how far would he go in the name of self-promotion?

The library’s Facebook page features reviews of books also, so you might want to check that out.
