Herb Gardening in Sublette County
Thursday, April 27th
The Lovatt Room
Plants that are considered “herbs” are some of the
most nutritious foods on the planet and
besides being super nutritious, herbs add interest and flavor to
foods. In this workshop, Sublette County Master Gardener Arlinda
McLaughlin will share information on how to grow annual and perennial
herbs, ranging from the easiest to grow (parsley, mint, and chives)
to the fussy ones (basil). Participants will learn which herbs are
well-loved by our regional wildlife and which are deer and rabbit
resistant. Information on the culinary uses of herbs will be shared,
as well as recipes for preserving herbs.

Wyoming Libraries Snapshot Day 2016
On Tuesday, October 11th, libraries around Wyoming took photos
and gathered testimonials of people enjoying their resources. 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. See a few of the pictures we captured
of Pinedale Library patrons using their library!
