We will be closed for President's Day, February 17.
We are doing the ONE BOOK WYOMING program, which will be a book from Craig Johnson, these are to be read and passed on to someone else, and this is a state wide program that we chose to participate in.
We have our new copier, which includes a fax machine. So we are ready to fulfill your copying needs. Thanks for your patience while we were without a fax machine.
We continue to accept book and DVD donations!
