Wyoming Literacy Day

Nearly 8,000 books will be distributed to first-graders at Wyoming Reads literacy celebrations held in each of the state’s 23 counties.

First Lady Carol Mead will be a special guest at the 20th annual Natrona County celebration, held at the Natrona County Library and Nicolaysen Art Museum with over 1,200 Natrona County first-graders in attendance from public, private, and home schools. The celebration will begin at 11 a.m.

In addition, 250 Natrona County first-graders will receive their first library card. Celebrity readers from the community will be stationed at the library to read books to the children, who will also enjoy a picnic lunch and a special fairytale about “The Good Queen Sue” — a tribute to Sue Jorgensen, in whose memory this event was established.

The fairytale is presented as a play performed at the Nicolaysen Art Museum, featuring students from the Natrona County High School Theatre department. Music will be provided by Richard Turner from the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra.
