LCLS offers two e-book libraries, in partnership with the Wyoming State Library and other Wyoming libraries.
To access these e-book libraries, you need three things:
- a valid library card,
- your PIN,
- a device that allows you to download an app. Smart phones, tablets, e-readers and most PC’s have this capability.

I am so excited! In the next few weeks, there will be a huge influx of migrating birds flying through our area. Some will stay here for the summer and some will travel on to areas farther north.

The skies will be full of brighter colors and different shapes and marvelous songs.Read More
