We are saddened to hear of the death of Linnea “Linn” Rounds. She passed away at the age of 75 on June 19, 2019.

Linn worked many years at the Wyoming State Library and managed the Publications, Public Programs, and Marketing Office. She retired in 2003 after 26 years with the WSL. You can read her words on her retirement and the words of Jerry Krois, who was Deputy State Librarian at the time, in this clip from the May-June 2003 Outrider.

At her retirement party, the State Library staff congratulated her by joining in a rousing chant of “Linn! Linn! Wonderful Linn!” (That’s an “i” not a “y” when you spell it, my friend!) She was well-loved by her co-workers and the many people in the Wyoming library community who worked with her over the years.

A funeral for Linn will be held at St. Mary’s Cathedral on June 24 at 11 a.m. Memorials may be made to the Davis Hospice Center and Community Action of Laramie County. Condolences may be offered at

Her obituary may be found in the Wyoming Tribune-Eagle.
