Earlier this year, the Wyoming State Library had a special visitor to kick off summer reading — Platte the Pronghorn! Platte enjoyed meeting the WSL staff and checking out all our library has to offer.

Platte came to us from the Natrona County Library. He had a great visit here, and he’s ready and willing to come to your library too! We also have members of the Paw Patrol available to borrow.

Want your patrons to have a special day with Platte the Pronghorn or with Marshall, Skye, and Chase? Contact Katelyn Wittenborn, WSL Interlibrary Loan Technician, at or (307) 777-7282 to borrow the costumes.
