Yesterday, Goshen County Library celebrated the 100 years it has served its community. According to a 1969 history of the library found in the State Publications database, the library was established in 1922 by “a small group of a Womans Club” in the junior high wing of Torrington High School.

November 16 events marking the anniversary included StoryWalk ribbon cuttings in Fort Laramie and Yoder, and a proclamation and open house at the main library in Torrington.
