Daily Update

Axe throwing is coming to Casper!

Have you guys ever tried axe throwing? Oil City Axe Company is bringing that, along with rage rooms, to our community. I have a feeling this place will be a great stop for releasing stress and anxiety. And it sounds fun!

The Grand Opening is this Thursday at 3300 E. Yellowstone Ywy. and it starts at 4:00 p.m.

Don't forget about the Halloween Carnival!

I know, it's in the calendar, but this is an event your kids won't want to miss. They have Pumpkin Putt Putt and Mummy bowling, along with a lot of other FREE games.

Local Business Highlight:
The Book Exchange

Look at all the books! Hey guys, it's Kelly.

I visited The Book Exchange for the first time last week, as I'm sure you can tell based on the snow falling in the photos. While the outside may not look like much, the inside was well-stocked with lots of books in every genre and style.

Are you a book nerd like me? Well, if you haven't been to The Book Exchange than you haven't experienced true happiness. And I am being completely serious when I say that.

Read on to learn all the details on Casper's used book store!

So, what do they have?

They have books in EVERY genre! The shelves are well labeled so you can go to the section you are interested in and then browse from there.

It kind of feels like a treasure hunt! I could spend all afternoon looking through the books and finding new things I want to read. 

What's their "Book Exchange Policy"?

If you have gently used books that you've read once but don't want to read again, gather those together and bring them in. Books traded in are credited towards other books you'd like to try from the store!

This keeps your bookshelf from getting too full and helps others enjoy books you are done with.

Spend your next snowy day picking up a new read.

Winter feels like it's here (even though, officially, it's not). What better way to spend a chilly day than inside snuggled up under a blanket with a new book to read? That sounds like the perfect day to me!

Check them out next time you're downtown.
