Jeff, who has worked at Laramie County Library System since 2016, says Leadership Cheyenne, “was a phenomenal experience,” and that he looks forward to finding ways to help Laramie County Library System continue to meet the needs of the community.
Jerry Jones, Youth Services Manager, is retiring in July after 30 years at Natrona County Library.She has been a key player, dedicated to providing excellent and innovative library services. Her rapport with children is caring and natural, and her personal enthusiasm is reflected in the students’ joy with the books she gives them. The core of Jerry’s success in connecting with the children of Natrona County is her natural ability to connect with children and desire to help provide the necessary tools to become successful learners. The Natrona County Library wishes Jerry much happiness as she writes the next chapter of her life.
