Friend, employee and volunteer of the Basin Branch of the Big Horn County Library, Marjorie Creech passed away suddenly on Monday, July 18. Marj was employed by the library for 20 years and a volunteer for many years before that. She was born in 1925 and among her loves were horses, walking and the library. She kept the library running by knowing more about where the books went than anyone else, keeping the plants watered, weeding out old volumes and delighting in the patrons – from children who enjoy the library just a little too much to stay silent, to adults who still remember loving the place as children.

a day filled with information and activities focusing on team building, communication, work/life balance, and leadership styles.

Amy Cahill said “I feel like I have learned so many skills and have mentors and hand- outs as resources when I have questions.” Time was also spent discussing the future
of the library leadership institute. Team lead- ers stepped up in the areas of fundraising, communication, and mentoring.
