The Sublette County Public Library in Pinedale recently mounted commemorative plaques to the main library and to the addition to the library honoring the contributions of long time director Daphne Platts.

The main library was built in 1998, and the addition was added in 2008. Both buildings were constructed under the leadership of Daphne, who served as director from 1985 to 2010.

Daphne, being the epitome of Southern womanhood, avoided personal recognition and believed that one should be mentioned in the newspaper only on birth, marriage, & death. However, she was greatly beloved by the numerous colleagues whom she mentored and a number of the next generation of librarians, who began as pages working with her. Daphne currently resides in the assisted living section of the Sublette Center in Pinedale, Wyo. 

Her husband, James Platts died on August 6, 2015.
