The Southwest Sublette County Pioneers Senior Citizen Center

During the month of April, the Pinedale Library will host The Way We Worked, a Museum on Main Street exhibition organized by the Smithsonian Institute Traveling Exhibition Service. The main exhibit will be on display at the Pinedale Library from April 5th until May 5th. It comes to Sublette County through the Wyoming Humanities Council, funded by the U.S. Congress and is based on an exhibition created by the National Archives.

While the main exhibit in Pinedale focuses on the history of work in America, we at the Big Piney Library are also working on multiple events focused on the history of work in Sublette County. We are looking forward to capturing some of your work stories to include as an interactive element in the Smithsonian exhibit. We will conduct 90 second recordings of your work story at the Senior Center on Wednesday March 7th.

If you have a story you would like to share, please contact Tawyna Miller at the Big Piney Library (307) 276-3515, or email her at tmiller@sublettecountylibrary.org.
