We are very excited to have local drag queen, Ginger Devine, join us again this year in celebration of Northern Nevada Pride. For this Virtual Story Time, Ms. Ginger will read Auntie Uncle: Drag Queen Hero, by Ellie Roye and Hannah Chambers, in conjunction with the virtual Northern Nevada Pride celebration.
Learn about the women from our state who have served in the military--from the very first ones to those who serve today. Presenter Anne Davis graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1982 and served on active duty in the Army for 29 years, eventually retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel.
Immunize Nevada is offering a free COVID-19 vaccination clinic at several of our libraries. Appointments are not required and you do not need to have health insurance. Your privacy will be protected, and receiving the vaccine will not affect your immigration status.
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.
