EvaLyn Flores joined the Laramie County Library System at the end of June as an Early Literacy Outreach Specialist. She will play a key role in the library’s new First Steps Initiative which is being funded by the Laramie County Library Foundation. Before joining the Laramie County Library System, EvaLyn worked as a Family Engagement Professional at Head Start of Laramie County. One of EvaLyn’s favorite parts of working at the Laramie County Library is, “being able to be a part of a great initiative and having the opportunity to shape and build it for the future.” EvaLyn is passionate about working with children and helping them learn to read. As an outreach specialist, EvaLyn loves having the opportunity to assist families in fostering the same positive learning environment in their own homes that is found here at the library.
Campbell County Public Library has named Becky Prelle (left) as Youth Services Coordinator for the CCPL Children’s Department. Prelle replaces Janet Tharp (right) who retired after 26 years at CCPL, the last ten in the coordinator position.
Prelle’s CCPL career started in 2001 as a part-time Youth Services Specialist; in 2004 she moved to full time in that position. During her 16 years at CCPL, she has enjoyed presenting and planning children’s story time programs, oral storytelling, school age program planning, dressing in crazy costumes to engage her young audiences, and so much more. She is passionate about early literacy and the importance of the public library in our community.
Away from the library, Prelle loves to fish, hike, camp with her family and friends, travel with her husband on spur of the moment trips, and spend time with her three daughters and new son in law.
Kasey Storey joined the Laramie County Library System in September as the new Communications Coordinator. Before joining the library, Kasey completed her Master of Arts Degree in Liberal Studies at Dartmouth College. Kasey grew up in Cheyenne and is thrilled to have the opportunity to work at the same library system where she spent her time reading and learning as a child. So far, her favorite part of working at the Laramie County Library System has been, “seeing the breadth and diversity of the services and programs we offer and being able to share with the Cheyenne community all the wonderful things we do here at the library.”
