Laramie, Wyo. – All of Wyoming's 23 public county libraries recently received checks for $100,000. That's part of a long-term fundraising campaign designed to build endowments at each county library across the state. The checks came through a program created by the Wyoming legislature. Under a measure that took effect in 2008, the state is contributing matching donations to local libraries.
