State Library Reaches Out to Communities at WAM Meeting

Wyoming State Library staffers Chris Van Burgh and Karen Kitchens reached out to communities at last week’s Wyoming Association of Municipalities (WAM) winter workshop in Cheyenne. Chris is the WSL’s Database Instruction Librarian and Karen is our State Publications Librarian.

This was a great opportunity for the WSL to promote the considerable resources available to all Wyoming residents through their local libraries. Karen and Chris talked with people from more than 29 different communities of every size, from every corner of the state — Pavillion, Star Valley Ranch, Shoshoni, Hanna, Casper, Glendo, and so many more.

Participants who visited the WSL table learned about all the great library services available to Wyoming residents such as GoWYLD.net, ebooks and Zinio, and the Talking Books program. The WSL’s Digital Collection Suite was a big hit, particularly Wyoming Newspapers.

The Wyoming Association of Municipalities advocates for the state’s cities and towns, provides educational opportunities for WAM members, and creates connections among Wyoming communities.
