Last month, Carbon County Library System celebrated its newly relocated and renovated main library in Rawlins with an open house.
The event, which took place August 13, featured special guest C.J. Box, the well-known Wyoming author of the best-selling Joe Pickett series. Box spoke of fond boyhood memories of riding his bicycle to the Natrona County Library where the staff looked out for him.
The newly renovated library was just one part of Carbon County’s 6th Penny Specific Purpose Tax Project: “Restoring the Past to Build the Future.”
The library was relocated to the first floor of its building. This allowed it to have street level entry with no stairs, making the library more accessible. The library also now provides focused activity areas for children, teens, adults, and groups.
