For at least a decade, the Washington State Library has joined the festivities at the Washington State Fair in Puyallup to get the word out to fairgoers about the services the Library provides for state taxpayers. As in previous years, the Office of Secretary of State also sent representatives from the Washington Talking Book & Braille Library and the State Archives to provide information about how each serves Washingtonians.
As in the last several years, the State Fair’s Education Pavilion staff encouraged the State Library to join Consumer Protection weekend, which also featured an informational table from the Secretary of State’s Corporations and Charities division.
Next year, Archives plans to conduct a demonstration in the Hobby Hall, which should be quite an upgrade to proceedings.
The staff of the Office of Secretary of State Kim Wyman are extremely grateful to the Washington State Fair for making Education Pavilion booths available to non-profits and government agencies free of charge.
It’s very helpful in getting the word out to folks about what the State Library and State Archives do for Washington taxpayers. The Fair does a great service, and we’re always very happy to participate!
