National Library Week is sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. This year it also coincides with the Washoe County School District’s spring break, giving parents and students alike another reason to visit their closest library.
According to the ALA, libraries have historically served as America’s great equalizers of knowledge. Today’s libraries help level the playing field by making both print and digital information affordable, available and accessible to all people. The strength of libraries has always been the diversity of their collections and commitment to serving all people.
Washoe County residents are invited to area libraries next week for a variety of programs including:
• Proclamation of National Library Week by the County Commission at 10 a.m. on Tuesday at the Washoe County Complex on Ninth Street and Wells Avenue.
• Larry Wilson Magic will amaze at 11:15 a.m. on Wednesday at the Northwest Library.
• Tax Assistance continues at the Downtown Reno, North Valleys, Northwest, Sierra View, South Valleys, Spanish Springs and Sparks libraries
• Story times, winter/spring reading program and much more.
