Wyoming State Librarian Jamie Markus is presiding over the 2023 Annual Meeting of the Western Council of State Libraries (WestCo) this week in Honolulu, Hawaii. Jamie became President of WestCo on July 1, 2022, and will serve in that office through June 30, 2024. He will remain on the board an additional two years as Past President.
The Western Council is made up of 22 state library agencies west of the Mississippi River. Among its functions, it promotes library service in member states, provides a forum for interstate collaboration, and invests in innovative projects.
Wyoming joined the Western Council in the 1970s. Participation enables the State Library to share what has worked in Wyoming and to learn from other states.
