On Friday, September 6, 2019, Wyoming librarians welcomed Senator Mike Enzi and Librarian of Congress Dr. Carla Hayden to the Wyoming Library Directors Retreat preceding a special reception at the Laramie County Library open to all Wyoming library staff.
Dr. Hayden joined Senator Enzi and his wife Diana for an afternoon storytime. The guests read Born to Ride: A Story About Bicycle Face by Larissa Theule, The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson, and The Pout Pout Fish by Deborah Diesen to the delight of both children and adults in the audience. Storytime was followed by a closed meeting, but not before Dr. Hayden had taken a few moments to chat with the younger library patrons.
During the meeting, Senator Enzi and Dr. Hayden spoke personally with library directors from all of Wyoming’s major library branches for an hour and a half. Afterwards, the guests of honor, directors, and library staff were welcomed to a reception celebrating the special visit.
The Wyoming State Library would like to thank Senator Mike Enzi, Diana Enzi, and Dr. Carla Hayden for joining us and empowering the minds of library leaders throughout our great state.
