From Laramie County Library System
Olympus Games and Comics received the Wyoming Library Association’s Hero/Heroine Award after being nominated by Laramie County Library System. The award, which recognizes an outstanding group or person whose hard work has made a difference to a Wyoming library, was presented to owner Kyle McCormick during a small ceremony at Laramie County Library on Tuesday, September 29.
Olympus Games and Comics has played an instrumental role in many of Laramie County Library’s programs and events by providing comics, activities, games and more. They are an exceptional partner to the library who goes above and beyond to ensure the children in Laramie County have access to the many worlds and adventures lying in wait behind the cover of their comic books.
Mynda Camphouse, Youth Services Event Coordinator for Laramie County Library System, nominated the hobby store, located at 1710 Central Avenue in Cheyenne. “Their investment in encouraging youth and adult literacy has been demonstrated by donating all the free comics for our Free Comic Book Day, by bringing employees and interactive table top games to library events, and by providing guidance to adults on encouraging youth literacy,” she said. “They are a fantastic partner and an amazing group of people who see the importance of promoting literacy in all its forms in the Cheyenne community.”
Olympus Games and Comics is a locally-owned store that specializes in board games, miniatures, comics, role playing games, and more. The store fosters a great sense of community and ensures that comic culture is accessible to all by participating in free library events including Star Wars Reads, Library Con, and Free Comic Book Day.
