Carrie Lucas is leaving the Laramie County Library System. Carrie started part-time work at LCLS in October 2007. She was a Wyoming SWIM scholarship recipient in 2010 and graduated from University of North Texas in August 2012 with a Master of Library and Information Science and graduate certificates in Youth Services and Advanced Management. Carrie became the Assistant Manager, Youth & Outreach Services and Children’s Librarian in a full-time capacity in June 2011. She developed LCLS early literacy mascots, ELSIE and EDDIE, and because of her work and vision, LCLS opened the Early Literacy Center on the 2nd floor of the Cheyenne Library in April 2013. Carrie was named a Mover and Shaker in 2015 by Library Journal. Carrie’s impact on children and caregivers in the Laramie County Community is immeasurable and LCLS is fortunate to have had her vision and drive improving library services for over ten years.
Sandy Barstow recently retired after 30 years at the University of Wyoming Libraries. Originally hired in 1988 as Head of Acquisitions, she also served as Assistant Dean, and most recently, Head of Collection Development. She’ll be missed for her wry sense of humor and her good negotiating skills with vendors.
