The Downtown Reno Library – Children’s Section has been remodeled and the community is invited to help us celebrate at the ribbon cutting and grand reopening celebration!
The newly expanded and renovated children’s library area is the heart of the centrally located Downtown Reno Library and will be humming with activity as children read, learn, explore, and play with parents and caregivers nearby. The newly renovated children’s department will offer enhanced material collection’s and expanded children’s programming.
“We are thrilled to have been given the opportunity to create a safe, fun, and inviting space for all children and families to enjoy” according to Library Director Jeff Scott. “This newly renovated children’s area helps us grow young readers for our community.”
Washoe County Library System strives to provide enriching opportunities for people to learn new skills and collaborate. Exploring the children’s section of libraries, and encouraging your children to pick out books to read is a great way of cultivating a love of reading. The Washoe County Library System offers a wide variety of books to introduce your children to. A trip to the library can open your child’s eyes to a whole host of subjects and interests.
Funding for this project was provided in part by the generous support of the Tacchino Family Trust, Friends of Washoe County Library, Washoe County, and through community members who financial contributed during the Washoe County Library System's annual “Give the Gift of Reading” fund raising campaign.
