July 2019 Newsletter
Independence Day, Sheridan Wyo Rodeo, and Where's Waldo? on Main Street! These events define July in Sheridan. What a great time of year! It's time for family trips, camping, hiking, boating, and hanging out in the backyard. We wait all year to enjoy these few months of summer. The store is stocked with some great books for you to take on vacation, or just enjoy in the cool shade on a hot day. We also carry a large selection of field guides for birds, flowers, trees, and other plants. Stop by the store and let us help you find the perfect book for you. Don't forget that we stock maps of the area, including the Bighorn Forest, Cloud Peak Wilderness, 7.5 minute topos,and BLM.

It's important to keep the kids reading during summer vacation, and our children's section has many titles to entertain them, as well as books with fun activities to keep them busy. Come on down to Historic Downtown Sheridan, it's a great place to live, work, play, and shop!



You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism. ~Erma Bombeck
