About the Program

Every year through Wyoming Reads, the Sue Jorgensen Library Foundation gives thousands of first-graders a book to keep and cherish. The Wyoming State Library’s Central Acquisitions Program acquires these books at discounts up to 40 percent, stretching precious dollars so more books can be delivered to grateful young readers.

For the 2021 event, held at locations in all 23 counties, more than 6,800 students received a book to cherish that they picked from the year’s six selections.
