Wow, what a day! They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so we collected a few from today’s Wyoming Reads celebration.
Kudos to the Sue Jorgensen Library Foundation for making this event possible with the help of library staff, volunteers, and donors from across Wyoming. Their work and generosity put a picture book to keep in the hands of every first grader in the state today.
