Directors from Wyoming’s 23 public libraries and 8 academic libraries (community colleges plus the University of Wyoming) were invited to Rawlins this week for the 2021 Library Directors’ Work Session. This two-day event was supported with Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
This annual gathering allows directors to meet with the State Librarian for training and for planning of state-funded and LSTA-funded projects. Topics this year included human resources; blockchain and libraries; diversity, equity, and inclusion; grant funding opportunities; and the current challenges to library materials in Campbell County. Evaluations from prior sessions have been overwhelmingly positive, with directors appreciating the information they can use to improve service to their communities.
The Work Session is one of many projects the Wyoming State Library supports with LSTA funds. Learn more about how the WSL uses federal funds to extend and develop library services across the state.
