On February 5, Larry Kiser retired as a maintenance assistant at Laramie County Library System after over 24 years of dedicated service. Larry began working at the library in November of 1996 and was a key factor in the maintenance and upkeep of the library’s facilities. Larry was instrumental in the care of the Central Avenue location where he began his library career and contributed immensely during the labor-intensive move to the library’s new building on Pioneer Avenue.
