Imagine Your Story with the Summer Reading Challenge

This year, Laramie County Library System’s Summer Reading Challenge is going virtual. This digital shift is a big one given that we have never conducted Summer Reading in this format, but, it is also a necessary one, given the current restrictions required in this new COVID-19 world.

Learning Computers at Your Library

When you go to the second floor of Laramie County Library, pass the Ask Here Desk and head towards our youth computers, three rows of computers in particular are sure to catch your eye! They sit towards the windows, and their brightly colored keyboards add to the already vibrant and cheerful décor of the library’s youth collection. These colorful machines are the library’s learning computers, and they are responsible for much more than added decoration.Read More

Travel Log: New York

Planning a trip can be daunting.
