The Alliance for Historic Wyoming’s Cowboy Carnegie Library exhibit is on display at the library. The five panels detail the history and architecture of Wyoming’s sixteen Carnegie libraries. The current Niobrara County Library was completed in 1919 with an $11,000 Carnegie grant; a handicapped addition was completed in 1999. The Carnegie building in Lusk is the only Wyoming Carnegie with a corner entrance. Be sure to stop by to check out the exhibit before it moves on to Newcastle.

Linda Howard’s newest book is “Troublemaker.” For Morgan Yancy, team leader of a paramilitary group, nothing comes before his job. When he’s ambushed and almost killed, he’s sent to a remote location and told to stay vigilant. Between a tempting housemate and a deadly threat this is proving to be his most dangerous mission yet. Part-time Police Chief of a small West Virginia town, Isabeau “Bo” Maran finally has her life figured out. She doesn’t need a troublemaker as enticing and secretive as Morgan. Then Morgan’s cover is blown, and that might just cost Bo her life.
