On the Move in Washakie County

Aug 17, 2021

The excitement is building as the Washakie County Library staff get ready to open their new library at 801 Big Horn Ave. in downtown Worland. Opening day has yet to be announced. Here are a few photos of the crew in action, getting things ready for patrons.

Washakie County summer employees Waylon Lissman (left) and Regan Schmeltzer (right) never thought they would spend their summer working in a library. From moving books and furniture to assembling shelving, these courteous young men have worked hard this summer. Waylon continues his education at the Worland High School and Regan will be heading to Casper College. The library staff have appreciated their smiles and strong backs during the move to the new location.

Ladonna LaCroix, assistant library director stands in the teen section of the library. She is excited for the multi-purpose use of the area. With teens in school during the day the space is available for all of the “silver” patrons who are interested in getting some one on one help during the day. There will be plenty of comfortable seating, friendly faces and assistance to learn a new task.

Ladonna enthusiastically starts the reshelving process of the books in the new Washakie County Library. They’re still waiting for all of the products to arrive that have been ordered, but now have a starting point! Now if that circulation desk would arrive, they may be in business soon!
