Check out this cool Website too!
You can access a site for kids in which they may choose a book to read, and either read it themselves, or have it read to them and follow along. It’s part of the the Wyoming State Library bank of databases available to library card holders. You’ll need your library card number and your pin number to get into the site. (If you’re not sure what your pin number is, please feel free to call the Library and we will let you know what it is.) Just click here to log on: http://wyld.state.wy.us/dbloginform.html (If you don’t know your Library card number, or your pin, call the library at 307-683-2922 and we will be happy to help you out!)
