It’s Holiday Time at Park County Library System. Be sure to visit your local libraries in Cody, Powell, and Meeteetse where you’ll find great holiday books, music, movies and people to add some cheer to your lives this month.
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.
Enjoy the “Howdy” Wyoming Postcard art exhibit at Powell’s Library during October and November. It is a traveling exhibit that considers the postcard as a communication device and advertiser of Wyoming’s natural and cultural landscape. Color, and black and white, images illustrate how postcards have promoted Wyoming as a “vacation dreamland” and a “wonderland of the West.” This exhibit comes from the Wyoming State Museum in Cheyenne.
