Wyoming Libraries Snapshot Day 2016

On Tuesday, October 11th, libraries around Wyoming took photos and gathered testimonials of people enjoying their resources.

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!
