Our Story

Hi! I’m Rhianna, and I’m so excited you are here.

I have worked with young families in Laramie for almost 10 years and I truly believe this work is my calling. I discovered my passion for education while attending the University of Wyoming, and graduated with a BA in Elementary Education and a minor in Early Childhood Education. I taught preschool for several years before my first child was born, and after that continued to be involved with the kids in Laramie through various other programs. Our son was born in the weeks before the world shut down due to COVID-19, and that is when I decided to take the leap and open the Nest. I knew families needed access to toys, games, and puzzles at home now more than ever and that I had the background to help them use those toys effectively. My goal is to be able to enrich the lives of kids and parents in Laramie, especially through this difficult time, and to be able to provide them with high quality activities and experiences.

I hope you and your family will enjoy the library, and I can’t wait to meet you!
