Burns Branch Library

History of the Burns Branch Library

The Burns Branch library first opened on November 28, 1933 in the town hall. Around this time, Laramie County Library System supplied a number of deposit stations (unstaffed collections) in Carpenter, Egbert, and at least 30 rural schools. A more defined branch was opened in Burns to save residents travel time and provide them with a larger selection of the collection.

The Burns Branch Library is located in the heart of Main Street, next to Wyoming Bank & Trust and down the street from the U.S. Post Office. It serves a population of more than 300 people, including the residents within Laramie County School District #2.

This location has a meeting room patrons may reserve for public or private meetings. The conference table can seat 12-16 comfortably, with space around the perimeter of the room for a few additional seats. Coffee, tea, and water are available. Call 307.547.2249 for additional details.
