The Wonder of it All is the theme for Winter Gathering 2015. Organizers are lining up a great afternoon. Be sure to make some room in your own schedule for author talks, workshops and other activities at Park County Public Library in Cody. It’s a fun place to meet and greet friends — old and new!

On Tuesday, Oct. 14 the state’s libraries will host Wyoming Snapshot Day, an event highlighting the importance of libraries to the state. Libraries will collect photos, comments and usage numbers to illustrate their impact every day of the year.
Be sure to stop in at the Cody, Powell, or Meeteetse Library. You CAN make a difference. Let the state know how much YOUR library means to you!
“We’ve done this for several years now,” Susan Mark, Wyoming State Library statistics librarian said. “When we see the faces and hear what our patrons have to say, it really shows how important libraries are to our communities.” Multiply that by how much our libraries are used – public library circulation alone is nearly 5 million a year – and you can see the impact they have every day.”
Wyoming residents can participate in Snapshot Day by visiting their local library and providing their comments. Be sure to look at all the fun pictures on flickr — https://secure.flickr.com/photos/wyomingsnapshot/
Wyoming Snapshot Day is a project of the Wyoming State Library (WSL) and the Wyoming Library Association.
Libraries around the country will celebrate Banned Books Week September 21-27. Your libraries in Park County will be no exceptions. There will be displays of banned material in Cody and Powell in order to demonstrate the frightening amount of material that censorship takes away from patrons every year throughout the country. Your librarians are forever battling against censorship and fighting for free speech. Come in and enjoy free bookmarks, information, and fun during this enlightening week.
The LOFT in Cody can’t wait to see you during Banned Books Week!!
