It’s been said that everyone is Irish on Saint Patrick’s Day, but if you really do have Irish ancestry every day of the year, you aren’t alone. More than 36 million Americans reported that they had Irish ancestry in the 2008 American Community Survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. That’s approximately 12% of the total population of the country.Read More
The Bandwidth Bandwagon
Bandwidth? Isn’t that how many band members you can get side by side across the street? Well, It can be, but not at the library.
What does it have to do with your library? Well, let’s take a look!Read More
I don’t know about you, but when I was in college, and even now when I have a paper or proposal to write, I get STUCK. It may only take me a couple hours to actually write and revise it, but it can take me weeks to just get started. Admittedly, this may have a teeny-tiny bit to do with my procrastination habit, but it never fails that when I have a document to produce I try to eat the elephant whole.Read More
¡Bienvenidos al blog de la biblioteca!
Me presento. Soy Abby, y trabajo en el segundo piso de la biblioteca. Antes de venir aquí a Cheyenne, trabajaba dos años con el Cuerpo de Paz en Colombia. Debo decirles que el español no es mi lengua materna, entonces, si hay errores, discúlpame.Read More
For many years, we’ve used three documents to help form our corporate culture. Marketing from the Heart, a list of expectations in terms of how we all interact and work, and an Organizational Philosophy, all serve as a reminder of how we provide exceptional customer service. The core of these documents are generosity, curiosity and connection.
We don’t want there to be any lonely pieces of information dangling with nowhere to go or a story waiting to be told sitting idle on a shelf. We want to know you and your needs so that we can bring you both together.Read More
Learning what genre you enjoy is a great way to find new authors. Here’s a bit about speculative fiction sub-genres and some popular new titles—Mary Gillgannon, Adult Fiction Selector of Laramie County Library.
The Game of Thrones TV series, the Hunger Game books and movies, the new Star Wars movie—all of these popular entertainment vehicles fit into the genre of speculative fiction.

Do you remember being a kid making wonderful things in art class from the vast array of colorful papers, crayons, paints, and assorted materials? I sure do – art was always my favorite class and I loved my art teachers!Read More
Our world revolves around technology. More and more businesses and services are requiring us to use computers, smartphones and tablets to access our accounts and information. So not only do you need a password to log into your device, you’ll need one that’s unique for each account (and sometimes one that features seven letters, one number, a character, your checking account number, a valid photo I.D., and the promise of your first-born child…. I’m just kidding, but haven’t you felt that way?) I thought that it could be helpful to talk about creating memorable secure passwords.Read More
“A messy desk is the sign of creative mind.” So the saying goes.
If this is true, then the state of the Youth and Outreach storage area was totally justifiable—or at least we liked to think it was.
I like to think I have one of the best jobs on the planet: I get to play with puppets, sing songs, make crafts, and read really silly books to make kids laugh all while teaching them about noses and toeses! What could be better? Read More
