About Us - Welcome to the CWC Library


We at the CWC Library are here to help.  It's not just our job, but our passion.  No question is too small, silly, or out-there...we have heard a lot and if we don't know the answer we hopefully can help you find it.

The CWC Library located in Main Hall 109 is the main library for the campus of Central Wyoming College, serving our students, instructional faculty, and campus staff, as well as the community of Riverton, Fremont County, and our multiple Outreach Centers in Lander, Wind River, Dubois, and Jackson.  

The Library provides over 30,000 physical materials specially selected to serve the students and faculty of Central Wyoming College. The book collection is supplemented by more than 200 databases and 1,200 electronic journals.  In addition, because of Wyoming’s unique consortium of libraries we provide access to any book, database, or electronic items throughout the state using interlibrary loans services.
