WSL Independence Day Closure

Jun 30, 2020

The Wyoming State Library will be closed Friday, July 3, for the Independence Day holiday. We will reopen on Monday, July 6.

We celebrate the July 4 holiday in honor of the signing of the Declaration of Independence by the Continental Congress on that date in 1776. Learn more about the Declaration from the National Archives.

Although we won’t be in the building, you can still check out reading material online — ebooks, downloadable audiobooks, and digital magazines — through GoWYLD.net.

Curious about how Independence Day was celebrated in Wyoming’s yesteryear? Read all about it in Wyoming Newspapers, our archived trove of the state’s historical newspapers. In this image from the July 4, 1885 Big Horn Sentinel, you can see the big events planned for Sheridan.
