The Nell J. Redfield Foundation Young People's Library features a unique oversized stack of books at the entrance and a separate Story Time room. Seven of the thirty-nine public computers (including an adult station so parents and children can work side by side, and two children’s games computers) and a family restroom complete the area as a family friendly place.

Offering wireless internet access and printing from your laptop, laptop locks, a public fax machine, a flatbed scanner for public use, and study rooms, the library is truly a destination for the whole family.

The atmosphere is enhanced by the cozy fireplace and comfortable seating throughout the building.

As part of the Washoe County Library system, users have access to a wide range of books, music, movies, current newspapers, popular magazines, downloadable ebooks and audio-books, books on tape and CD, and much, much more.
