As part of our Tails and Tales Summer Reading Challenge, we asked kids in Washoe County to send us original stories and poems about animals. These works (some with illustrations) are now up on our website and in parks throughout our area, where they will remain on display until the end of August.
You can find a list of locations and more information on our website.
