Sublette County Statue Dedication Honors Daphne Platts



Sublette County Library Executive Director Sukey Hohl with the “Journeys of the Imagination” bronze statue at the dedication ceremony.

On July 12, 2018, the statue Journeys of Imagination by Gary Lee Price of Provo, Utah was dedicated in memory of Daphne Davis Platts, Sublette County Library Director, who died in January of 2017. Bob McCarty and Chandra Stough played Irish fiddle tunes and Sukey Hohl, current director, spoke a few words and led the 60 people present in a toast to Daphne.

The statue depicts a young girl in overalls and a superhero cape on a paper airplane with a book in her back pocket. The statue perfectly represents how books and the imagination can empower young people to reach out for the best life has to offer. It is a perfect memorial for Daphne Platts who cared deeply about the rights of women and the power of literature. Daphne was director for 27 years and she was responsible for the log library being built in 1998 and then the rammed earth addition, built in 2009.

Music with Bob McCarty and Chandra Stough.
