GILLETTE, Wyo. — Campbell County Public Library received an award from the Board of Commissioners meeting Tuesday for its adults makerspace.

Campbell County Human Resources/Risk Management Generalist and Employee Recognition Commission HR Liaison Melissia Kershner presented the nomination for the county’s Star Worthy award, which recognizes a county department’s service, product, event or opportunity that benefits the county.

The Campbell County Public Library’s makerspace provides adult patrons a video lab, a digitization station, a sound lab and a 3D printer.

“They did want me to mention that the makerspace was funded by the Wyoming Community Foundation Grant, the Libraries Build Business Grant and the Library Foundation,” Kershner said.
