In continual pursuit of our mission to “serve the people of Laramie County by encouraging and supporting lifelong learning and adventure,” we here at Laramie County Library System are eliminating fines on children and teen materials beginning July 1, 2019. The new policy will be applicable to all materials on the second floor, excepting Blu-rays, DVDs, videogames, and adult nonfiction such as the parenting, homeschool, and childcare books. We are committed to creating, maintaining, and growing a library that is equitable and accessible, and eliminating these fines will move us forward in ensuring that the library is truly a place for all.

Summer is finally here, even though it got off to a cold and rainy start! With summer comes summer reading at the library! The theme this year is A Universe of Stories.

So, to help you get started on your summer reading goals, here are some books I’ve enjoyed.

Introduction from exhibit curator, Camellia El-Antably:
As we opened and placed each piece of artwork, the word that came was resonance. The shapes, the content, the colors, the imagery…the artwork gravitated together into cohesive groupings.
Did you know that the only time “capitol” with an “o” is supposed to be used is when you are talking about a building?
