Meet animals from around the world with the Conservation Ambassadors. Hear about the animals' wild tales of survival in this engaging, fun-filled, educational program that features live mammals, birds, and reptiles.
Mammals can be found almost anywhere on the planet: from the desert to the tropics and even in the polar regions and the oceans. Have fun learning about and identifying animal in this class with this fun project.
In response to the pandemic, Washoe County Library System suspended all in-person programs and use of our reservable meeting rooms. We will continue to reintroduce services throughout the year, and in September we will again be offering meeting rooms and events at our libraries.
Until then, please visit our website for information about upcoming and archived events.
