Earth Day is one week away, and we’re inviting you to celebrate by exploring the wonders of nature just outside the library. Go exploring, and then craft your own habitat box that documents your experience. You will take home a beautifully decorated interactive shrine that celebrates the wildlife habitat we all share.
See all the times and locations, and register here.
Explore the secret annex where Anne Frank and seven others hid from the Nazis during World War II. This event coincides with the How Did You Survive? exhibit on display at Northwest Reno Library through May 31.
Registration is required for this event. Each person or family member must register separately for their own virtual reality session.
This week, Neal will be joined by Steven Saylor, executive director of the Comstock Foundation, who will discuss the Donovan Mill. The Donovan Mill in Silver City, Nevada was established in 1860, and was the longest running stamp mill on the Comstock. It is one of only four mills left on the Comstock out of 260 that were in operation in the late 1800s. The Comstock Foundation purchased the mill in 2014 and began the long process of restoration that continues to this day.
This week we will be working with the sublimation printer and heat press. We'll provide you with a coffee mug, coaster, or metal bookmark (limit one item per person), and you can transfer a vivid, full-color design or photograph onto it. Bring an image file (.png or .jpg) on a flash drive or your phone, and leave with a vibrant, one-of-a-kind item.
