The library was a busy place Thursday night as two events had people braving our first winter storm to go out and participate. The evening led out with an artists' reception for the 16th annual Fiber Arts Show on the mezzanine of the library.
More than just a quilt show, fiber arts includes anything from sewing, knitting, crochet, quilting, weaving, and the list goes on. Janet Hoxie helped coordinate the show which she says is a “must see.”
In the Inner Circle of the library, historian, writer, and film maker, Gregory Nickerson gave a presentation exploring Wyoming's railroad history. He says we need to think of Wyoming as the “Railroad State.” Sheridan owes much of its existence to the railroad.
But the railroad also united our country after the Civil War.
In the 1930's, while still in college, Lewis Shepherd witnessed the end of the golden era of passenger trains.
The Fiber Arts Show will be on display through October.
