The Sue Jorgensen Library Foundation History
The Sue Jorgensen Library Foundation was created in 1996 to benefit libraries and advance the cause of childhood literacy in Wyoming. After making a significant contribution of books to the library of her children's elementary school, the foundation learned of a community that held an annual drive to raise enough money to give every first grade child a book to encourage early enthusiasm for reading. With the support of local teachers, administrators, and parents, the "Casper Cares, Casper Reads" project was born.

Once again, we hope each of you had a truly blessed Christmas and we wish the best for you and yours in the year ahead!
I. Sample Sets
The 225 sample sets are at the Wyoming State Library and they will begin shipping next week. You will not receive enough sets for each classroom to have their own. Typically we ask buildings with multiple first grade classes to share a set.
REMEMBER, these sample sets become part of your final inventory to fill the children’s orders at your celebration. Please make arrangements to retrieve all the sample sets from your schools once the children have made their selections.
II. Book Order FormsWe ask the Area Coordinators to collect and verify all book orders before sending them on to us. The 2013 Book Order Form is available on the updated website.
