Introduction from exhibit curator, Camellia El-Antably:

Most of us had a class in school on libraries resulting in vague memories of terms like fiction and non-fiction, the Dewey decimal system and card catalogs. But even if you are a regular library user, there may still be gaps in your knowledge. Here are the most common areas of confusion:
On January 15th, a superhero visited the Laramie County Library. He didn’t have a cape, a mask, or flashy tights and he walked in through the front doors rather than flying through a window or crashing through a wall. He didn’t display any spidey senses, super-speed, or un-worldly strength, but he did wear one indication of his superpowers: a beautifully beaded pendant hanging around his neck. The intricate array of vivid and delicate beads formed a bright superhero emblem that was part Superman symbol and part Flash sign. With his dark framed glasses and light brown blazer, Lee Francis IV appeared to be somewhat of a Clark Kent figure: subtle in appearance, but with an air that was undeniably super.
We at the library hope that you will never need to read this blog, but for those who are facing the death of a loved one, we hope this will help in a small way. We have some books in our collection that can help provide a little bit of solace in this difficult time, and others that can help you create treasured memories of your loved one.
