Washoe County Library System is excited to announce that most locations will once again offer browsing and computer access. Beginning Monday, May 3, you will be able to browse library collections and displays, pick up holds, and use public computers and printers.
Services will be expanded at all branches except the Duncan/Traner, Senior Center, and Verdi libraries, all of which will remain closed, and the North Valleys library, which will maintain its current hours and services. Not all services will be available at all locations or during all hours, so check our website for the most up-to-date information about hours and available services.
Due to limited occupancy and concern for public and staff safety we ask that you make your visits as brief as possible -- no more than 60 minutes, and that all visitors over the age of two wear a face covering while visiting the library.
Molodi is a performance ensemble that takes body percussion to the extreme. Molodi blends collegiate stepping, tap, gumboots, beatbox, poetry, and hip hop dance with guerilla theatre and robust personalities that bring to life a high-energy, rhythmic experience.
