Wyoming Reads 2015 – Newsletter #1

How can it already be time to start thinking about “Wyoming Reads”? Where did our summer go? We hope, however, it has been a good time for you and yours.

I. 2014 Wrap Up: May 13th marked the 2014 celebration as we, with your incredible assistance, provided over 8,000 Wyoming first graders with their very own personalized hardback book. Each of you puts your own special touches on the celebration in your community. Without your efforts there is no way we could possibly accomplish all that has to happen.

II. 2015 Book Selection: We are asking our Steering Committee to meet at 4:00 p.m. on September 30th at Hilltop National Bank in Casper to select the menu of six (6) book titles to be offered in 2015. If you would care to join us that afternoon you are certainly welcome. We will distribute another newsletter as soon as we can after that day to let you know this year’s selections.

III. 2015 “Wyoming Reads” Celebration: May 19, 2015 has been chosen as the date for next year’s “Wyoming Reads” event. Please get this on your calendar as well as the calendar for your school district(s). Let us know if there will be a conflict in your community. It is not too soon to begin reserving space for your celebration.

As always, we very much look forward to working with you on “Wyoming Reads”. This will be the 10th anniversary of the event on a statewide basis (and our 17th year overall here in Casper!). Thank you, again, for your amazing support and for what you do for the children of our state!
