In May Meeteetse 5th grader and budding historian, Camille Anderson, gave a presentation about her great-great-grandfather Carl Dunrud. Dunrud was the owner of the Double D guest ranch, near Kirwin, in the 1930’s. He hosted Amelia Earhart on a number of occasions and they became friends. Camille confirmed that Carl Dunrud was building a cabin for Earhart when word came that she had disappeared.
The Meeteetse Branch Library will present a Wyoming Humanities Road Scholars program “Cultural Gems: An Eclectic Look at Unique Libraries” by Richard and Mary Maturi. On April 10, 2017 at the Meeteetse Senior Center the program and lunch will run from 12:00-1:30.
The forum will present a collection of cultural gem libraries from coast-to-coast. It will illustrate the rich diversity of America’s libraries while exploring the humanities focus on a broad panorama of library architecture, unique building re-purposing and the various ways communities funded their libraries.
Join us on Tuesday, Nov. 29 from 4-6 pm to make Altered Book Journals. Inspired by the book “The Repurposed Library” we’ll create beautiful journals that will make wonderful Christmas gifts – to someone special, or to yourself! We’ve got books to “alter” (or you can bring your own) and the necessary supplies, you just need to bring your imagination and creativity!
