Riverton Museum loans Western memorabilia to library display

May 19, 2014 - From staff reports

The Riverton Museum announced the completion of a Cowboy Gear exhibit at the Riverton Branch Library.

Riverton Museum curator Karline Schubach partnered with the library to provide historic cowboy gear for an exhibit to promote Western-themed novels.

"Working with the (library) branch manager Gloria Brodle and library employees Aubry Ellis and Teri Wiblemo was a pleasure and we created a fantastic Western display," Schubach said. "I feel that this is a great partnership."

The Riverton Museum was able to loan out a set of spurs dating back to the 1890s, a pair of cow-hide mittens, a powder horn, a braided-horsehair bridle, branding irons, several samples of various barbed wire and a unique collection of horseshoes.

Wind River Institute talk

The library is hosting a talk Wednesday by Lorre Hoffman on the Wind River Institute. She will speak about educational opportunities, Maker Space workshops, opportunities to exhibit art, and the Small Business Round Table program.

The presentation is at 7 p.m. in the community room.

For more information, call the library at 856-3556.
