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.
The beautiful outdoor landscaping at the library is due in large part to Larry, who took great pride in carefully maintaining the grass, flora, and fauna that surround the building’s exterior. Larry also worked tirelessly during Wyoming’s winter snowstorms to ensure that the parking lot, sidewalks, and entrances were clear and safe for library visitors.
Larry assisted in nearly every aspect of building maintenance, coordinating several different shelf-moving projects and working diligently to shift the large library stacks into brand new configurations throughout all three floors of the building. He also was the primary courier for the library branches and regularly took trips to Pine Bluffs and Burns to ensure that every branch of the library had what they needed when they needed it.
Larry played a crucial role at Laramie County Library System and his wit, dedication, and care will be sincerely missed. The entire organization congratulates him on a well-earned retirement and wishes him well in the next chapter of his life.
