Library News

We’ve been missing our library patrons! If you need library material, don’t hesitate to call the library at 307-334-3490! We are happy to deliver or have items ready for you to pick up.

Children! We have projects for preschool and elementary aged children. These projects have a coordinating story on the library’s YouTube channel. Call or email the library to reserve one and to make arrangements for pick-up.

We’re Going on an Egg Hunt! We’re asking everyone to hang Easter Eggs in their windows (or outdoors) and when children (or adults) are looking for something to do they can take a picture of any they find, then email them to the library or attach to the library’s Facebook Page. There will be prizes!

“The Lost Night” is a new novel by Andrea Bartz. In 2009, a group of graduates were living in a Brooklyn loft. At the end of a long drunken night, one of them, Edie, was found dead near a suicide note. None of the group could believe it. Grief, shock and resentment scattered the friends. A decade later, Edie’s best friend Lindsey was attending a reunion when she saw an unsettling video of that fateful night. She starts to wonder if Edie was murdered – and worse if she herself was involved.
