Exhibits

Just as the Laramie County Library System’s collection of books covers myriad topics, exhibits at the Library cover a variety of interests and subjects, all encouraging lifelong learning and adventure.

Exhibits have ranged from historical clothing and handcrafted fishing equipment, to geological wonders and art that makes you scratch your head in wonder, to satellite parts and a tricked-out low-rider bike, to interactive computer stations and children’s art. You never know what you might discover at a library exhibit!
