Each five years, the Wyoming State Library submits a plan to the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) to guide the use of federal Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funds. During the latest plan period, covering Federal FY 2018-2022, the WSL received nearly $1 million each year to support library services statewide.
A recently completed evaluation of progress on the current plan concluded that the State Library achieved the goals it set forth. An independent evaluator, Carson Block of Carson Block Consulting, Inc., conducted the evaluation.
