She will offer advice on pre planning memorial services.  Pie provided by Moorcroft Branch Library staff.

Tuesday, May 21, at 1 p.m. - Finish Your Thoughts Richard Erb, P.C. attorney and counselor at law will discuss completing and preserving essential documents.  Attendees will also learn about Advance Directives, Release of Information versus Power of Attorney and final wishes planning.

The Circle of Light Photo Project will be on display May 6-24 at the library. This collection of photographs was taken by people who have received corneal transplants to restore their sight.  

As part of our commitment to promote a strong healthy community, we have partnered with Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Bank to share this exhibit in an effort to educate the public about the impact of eye donation in Colorado and Wyoming. 

Stop by and check out our new ‘Serve Yourself Shelf’ which includes craft kits, puzzles, board games and so much more.  Call (307) 756-3232 for more information or to make reservations for upcoming events.
