Relaxing, reading and recreating – all great things to do during the summer months, and the Wyoming State Library and Wyoming State Parks are partnering to promote all three with their Summer Reading Program.

The theme this year is “Make a Splash – Read!”. With the focus being on water, the collaboration with the Division of State Parks, Historic Sites and Trails is a logical one, says Tina Lyles. She is the Public Information Officer for the State Library. She says the idea is that both entities can attract a different demographic with some cross-marketing.

The two agencies have worked together to produce two bookmarks that will be available at libraries statewide, as well as at the fee booths of various state parks.

A postcard has also been produced to urge kids, as well as adults, to “soak up the sun and a good book with your local library's summer reading program!”

For more information about this year's program, visit any library. You can also learn more about all twelve of Wyoming's State Parks at wyoparks.org.
