“The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.” - St. Augustine

For the adventurers, hunters, travelers and anyone in between, the library has a variety of maps dating from the 1950s to now. We have National Geographic Maps; topographical maps of Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana; National Forest Service maps of almost all fifty states; state park maps; geological maps of Wyoming; world maps; national park maps; and Idaho and New Mexico logging maps. All of these maps may be checked out for your navigational needs or for your perusal.

Finals week in the library

With free wireless internet, comfy chairs and plenty of distraction-free nooks and crannies in which to study, the library is the place to be this time of year.

Humanities Council awards grant to CWC Library

We recently received notice that the Wyoming Humanities Council approved our grant application to fund Teresa Jordan's visit in April.

Jordan is the author of the Western classic, Riding the White Horse Home about her experience growing up on a ranch near Iron Mountain and the later sale of the ranch. She has written about a wide variety of Western issues, in particular the role of women in the settlement of the region.

Four communities are participating in the grant project. Jordan will speak at Western Wyoming Community College in Rock Springs on April 9 as part of their Speakers of the West series, here at CWC on April 10 and in Cody and Powell on April 11.
