Riverton Library teens produce catchy “Librarians” tune



Teens at the Riverton Library were encouraged to enter a contest to “write a song.” The kids who won the contest not only wrote their own lyrics, but also produced the song, Librarians.

Wyoming Libraries Snapshot Day is Today!

The state’s libraries are hosting Wyoming Snapshot Day today, an event highlighting the importance of libraries to the state. More than 70 libraries are collecting photos, comments and usage numbers to illustrate their impact every day of the year. Participating sites include public, school, special, community college and University of Wyoming libraries.

“Wyomingites love their libraries,” Susan Mark, Wyoming State Library statistics librarian said. “They use them to encourage their kids to read, to find a job, to further their education. Last year, circulation was over 5 million. Wyoming public libraries alone typically have more than three and a half million visits and nearly a million computer uses a year. The typical school librarian sees every student in the building at least once a week.”
