Washoe County Library News & Events: November 2017
Food for Fines
Helping to Feed the Hungry
November 1 - 30
Washoe County Library System is proud to partner again with the Food Bank of Northern Nevada and Project Mana for the fall “Food for Fines at the Library” event. Patrons can bring in one non-perishable food item for every overdue item. (Food cannot be exchanged for lost or damaged library materials). Everyone is welcome to participate in this food drive that has delivered thousands of pounds of food each year to our community.
Give the Gift of Reading
November 17 - December 31
After a successful launch last year, Washoe County Library System will once again aim to raise $20,000 to purchase 1,000 new picture books to support early literacy in Washoe County. Stay tuned for more information on how you can help, including sponsoring a book, joining the Friends of Washoe County Library, or participating in one of our events this fall with Barnes & Noble and the Reno Bighorns.
Now, you can visit some of Northern Nevada and Northern California's best museums and cultural institutions free with your Washoe County Library Card and Discover & Go.
