With summer officially behind us on this, the first day of Autumn, we take one last look back at Summer Reading. Although we don’t have 2017 numbers yet, last year more than 27,000 children and 6,000 adults participated across all 23 Wyoming public libraries. in 2016. Here’s the highlights from a great program held at Johnson County Library—one of many storytelling events across the state that added joy to the written word.
Priscilla Queen came to the Johnson County Library on June 22 for their summer reading program. Her three programs for preschool, grades K-3, and grades 4-5 drew a total of 155 participants. She also did a program at the Kaycee Branch Library on June 20.
“We had such a great time,” said Mary Rhoads, JCL Children’s Librarian. ” Priscilla did a great job and was so fun to have.” Priscilla is from Franktown, Colorado, and has appeared at the Rocky Mountain Storytelling Festival in Monument, Colorado.
