WLA Legislative Reception a Success

Wyoming State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jillian Balow (facing camera) joined the crowd of legislators, librarians, and others at the WLA Legislative Reception February 7.

Last Thursday’s Wyoming Library Legislative Reception drew a crowd of more than 75, including about 25 state legislators. We were also treated to a visit by State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jillian Balow.

Natrona County Library Director Lisa Scroggins gave a legislative update preceding the event. Lisa is Chair of WLA’s Legislative Committee. Wyoming State Librarian Jamie Markus (not pictured) also provided updates.

As usual, the row of crockpots was a hit. When legislators spend two months away from home, living on restaurant food, a night of home cooking is a welcome treat.

Legislators and librarians visit at the tables.

The annual legislative reception is a time when Wyoming librarians have a chance to mingle with their legislators and let them know how much their support is appreciated.
