Wyoming county closing library due to lack of funding

December 19, 2018

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — The library system in a central Wyoming county plans to close a branch next March due to a lack of funding.

Earlier this year, the Natrona County Public Library closed the main branch in Casper on Sundays to keep the Mills branch open with a part-time employee. Library officials say the staff money would be better used in Casper.

Library director Lisa Scroggins tells KTWO-AM the negative impact of a month of Sunday closures in Casper is more than the entire usage of the Mills branch in a year.

The branches are about 3 miles apart.

The town of Mills, just west of Casper, has about 3,900 residents.
