“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” – Socrates

The past 30 months have seen significant changes at the Casper College Goodstein Foundation Library. On behalf of the library team, I’d like to take this time to thank our MANY supporters and partners. For every physical upgrade or change to a library service, there has been a half a dozen or more people behind the scenes helping us make it happen.

We’d also like to give significant credit to Mike Sawyer, Robin Johnson, and a big thanks to the crew of Facilities Operations. Without their hard work and expertise none of the changes in the above photos would have been possible!

Lastly, we would like to thank the students, alumni, and faculty who use our many services. As evidenced by our “Fast Facts”, they keep us busy!
