Upcoming programs at a local library include science projects and a meeting with actors from a popular television series. Leslie Stratmoen has the details.


The recently hired program director for the Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library in Sheridan, Christina Schmidt, appeared this week on Public Pulse with Library Director Cameron Duff. Host Kim Love asked her how she was settling in.

He went on to ask what she’d learned, so far.

Love also asked whether the library partners with any other organizations for programming.

The library director then talked about the One Book Wyoming program.

The next day, after the presentation, Duff said they’d be handing out 300 copies of Johnson’s book, “Spirit of Steamboat,” free.

The “Longmire” TV show is based on the “Longmire” book series written by Johnson, who lives in Ucross. Taylor plays the lead character of Sheriff Walt Longmire and Bartley is “The Ferg,” who’s described as a hardworking, but sometimes awkward deputy. They’re coming to the area, along with the rest of the leading cast of actors to participate in Buffalo’s “Longmire Days” community celebration, which runs the following Friday to Sunday. Buffalo is the town that Johnson used as inspiration for his fictional town of Durant, where Sheriff Longmire resides.
