Featured event

The Sublette County Libraries closed on Wednesday, March 18th and will remain closed until further notice to help minimize the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak. This was a difficult decision to make as we take pride in going above and beyond in service to our community while also serving as a community gathering place to Sublette County.

All library programs and events are cancelled; at this time there are no rescheduled dates. Meetings scheduled for the libraries’ meeting rooms are also cancelled with the exception of government meetings. Library staff will contact the holders of meeting reservations.

We encourage you to hold on to any library materials you currently have checked out. There is no need to return items in the book drop unless you are leaving town indefinitely. Due dates on checked out materials will be suspended during the library closure; there will be no fines for overdue materials – it is our regular policy to not charge overdue fines.

The Libraries’ downloadable ebooks, eaudiobooks and more are available through our website on your mobile device for free with your library card number and PIN. Our regular 24/7 WiFi access will also be available outside the library buildings.

Library staff will be available via phone or email to answer your questions or assist with digital resources on a limited basis during the closure. Feel free to contact the Pinedale Library at (307) 367-4114 / circulation@sublettecountylibrary.org or the Big Piney Library at (307) 276-3515 / BPBranch@sublettecountylibrary.org. Be sure to include your phone number in your message so that staff can reach you.

Wyoming 2-1-1 Helpline

Wyoming 2-1-1 and the Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) are partnering to provide a public telephone helpline for COVID-19 questions and information.

Wyoming 2-1-1 is a statewide helpline which provides free, confidential information and referrals to health and human services. By dialing 2-1-1 from anywhere in the state of Wyoming, people are linked to information about COVID-19 as well as local resources, from both government and nonprofit agencies.

2-1-1 is available Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m.to 6:00 p.m. Service is available statewide by dialing 2-1-1 or 888-425-7138 during normal business hours. Callers requesting information outside standard business hours may leave a voicemail message and will receive a follow-up call the next business day.

Wyoming 2-1-1 also connects callers to other health and human services in their community. Many of these resources may also be needed by Wyoming residents at this time.

Questions can also be emailed to wdh-covid-19@wyo.gov.

Sublette County Bear Hunt
Going on now!

Let's spread some cheer across Sublette County during this time of social isolation! Place a teddy bear in your window for others to spot, and take a walk or drive to find some bears yourself! This bear hunt is inspired by the beloved children's classic We're Going on a Bear Hunt by author Michael Rosen and illustrator Helen Oxenbury. Let's get our bears in the window today and let it continue for as long as cheer is needed.

The Bear Hunt is not just for children, it's for everyone across Sublette County!

Don't have a teddy bear? Any stuffed animal is welcome.

Be social! Share your bear on social media with the hashtag #sublettecountybearhunt, or post a picture here! Don't divulge your specific location, a road name is fine but no address... this is a hunt after all!

Make Sublette County and Wyoming count as part of the Census
Census now open until July 15th

Did you know that an incomplete census count can lead to a lack of critical resources in our communities, including roads, schools, hospitals, and libraries? Wyoming will lose hundreds of federal dollars for each resident not counted. It has never been easier to respond to the census: online, over the phone or by mail. Now is a great time! If you do it now, a census worker won't have to come to your door later.

Take the census now online: https://2020census.gov/
Or by phone: 844-330-2020

New this year, you get to watch results come in through this cool online map
