Sticker Polls

Laramie County Library System has been utilizing stickers to assist visitors and our security team in maintaining the three hour per day time limit, and we decided there was no better way to dispose of a sticker than by using it to participate in a sticker poll. Each weekday, we post a new poll question for visitors to answer. We will post the poll results here! There have been some landslide victories and some very close calls. Check out all of the results and see if you agree with the winners!
