The Wyoming Library Community welcomes Joan Brinkley as the new Goshen County Library Director. She came to Torrington at the beginning of August from Texas where she was a branch manager with the Dallas Public Library. Before becoming a public librarian, she spent 20 odd years working for school districts in Oregon and Texas.

“As much as I miss the day to day contact with children, I have really come to enjoy working with adults,” Joan said.

She’s found Torrington to be very welcoming and supportive. “When I walked into the Goshen County Library on day one, my first thought was that the library was bigger, newer, and much nicer than I had imagined. The staff and I have some big plans for cleaning up the collection, building a new website, and developing a strong community outreach program. These are exciting times and I can’t wait to see what happens next.”

Joan says she looks forward to exploring the state, as well as learning about and reading regional authors.
