It is with sadness we share the news that Jerry Krois, a longtime fixture in the Wyoming library community, passed away on September 6, 2020 from metastatic pancreatic cancer at the age of 72. His obituary may be found in the Wyoming Tribune-Eagle.

His lengthy career in libraries included working here at the Wyoming State Library from 1978 to 2009, 23 of those years as Deputy State Librarian. We thought we’d share the Outrider article from August 2009 when he retired. Click here or on the image to read the PDF.

Jerry will be missed by all of us who knew him and worked with him.
