Washoe County Library System is making planned renovations to the public spaces at the Northwest Reno Library. The building will be closed to the public starting Monday, October 25, with access to the drive-up window and book drop remaining in place through Friday, November 5. The branch will fully close on Saturday, November 6 with an anticipated reopening planned for January, 2022.
These improvements are part of an ongoing effort to ensure that a first-class library system is available to all our patrons. The support of the community is appreciated during this process, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
