Wyoming Libraries Snapshot Day
Tuesday, October 8th

Wyoming Libraries Snapshot Day returns to the Big Piney Library! Stop in Tuesday, October 8th so we can collect your stories and perhaps snap a quick photo of you enjoying your library. Wyoming Libraries Snapshot Day allows libraries all across the state to show the tremendous impact that they have on the lives of Wyoming residents. Statistics and figures are great for reports, but your stories and photos better illustrate "a day in the life" of a library and help decision makers understand how valuable libraries are to their communities.

Exhibit: Rightfully Hers: American Women and the Vote
On display throughout September

Most Americans consider the ability to vote fundamental to the enjoyment of full citizenship. American women, however, were long denied that right. In 1920, American democracy dramatically expanded when the newly ratified 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution prohibited the states from denying the vote on the basis of sex.

This landmark voting rights victory was made possible by decades of suffragists’ persistent political engagement, and yet it is just one critical milestone in women’s battle for the vote. In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, Rightfully Hers: American Women and the Vote highlights the relentless struggle of diverse activists throughout U.S. history to secure voting rights for all American women. This exhibit will be on display at the Big Piney Library throughout the month of September.

Presented in part by the National archives Foundation, Unilever, Pivotal Ventures | A Melinda Gates Company, the Carl M. Freeman Foundation, AARP and Denise Gwyn Ferguson.
