At its 2017 conference, the Wyoming Library Association announced that Kate Mutch was elected as its new Vice President/President-Elect. Mutch is Assistant Director at Natrona County Public Library. “One of the greatest things about librarians is the willingness to share with others — information, materials and even themselves,” Mutch said in her candidate statement. “Wyoming libraries excel at this in a way I haven’t seen elsewhere. I believe working together to provide the best possible library service makes all of our libraries stronger.”
Cindy Moore, Converse County Library Assistant Director, was elected MPLA Representative, succeeding Steve Boss. “I believe very strongly in access without restrictions, the importance of libraries in our communities, exemplary customer service; and financial responsibility to our taxpayers,” she said. “MPLA has given me so much: grants for school, the Leadership Institute, and the support and friendship of librarians throughout the mountain western states.”
Thanks go to the other candidates on the ballot who were willing to step forward and offer their time and talents to WLA: Jennisen Lucas, who ran for Vice President, and Steve Boss and Nancy Venable, who ran for MPLA Representative. It was truly an excellent slate of candidates this year, and all of them should be commended.
