Do you know a young author or artist? You can see their work featured in Washoe County parks and libraries this summer.
We are inviting Washoe County residents ages 4-18 to submit a poem or short story for our Tails and Tales Summer Reading Story Stroll. Accepted writing (and illustrations, if provided)will be printed out and displayed in parks throughout Washoe County.
In keeping with this year's summer reading theme, we're asking for pieces about animals--wild animals, mythical creatures, pets...any kind of of animals.
Deadline for submissions is May 15. See the full details and submission requirements here. In the meantime, take a virtual stroll through our online galleries to see paintings, photographs, sculptures, and more by a variety of local artists.
May is Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month. Explore books that spotlight a range of experiences within Asian American and Pacific Islander communities with this staff-recommended list of adult fiction titles.
Share your art, writing, or music at this month’s social hour Zoom event. Nothing you want to share? No problem. Hang out to learn how to make Blackout Poetry. All you need is an old magazine or page from a book and a black marker.
Pollination is how plants reproduce or make new seeds and plants. Most pollination occurs with the help of animal pollinators: insects, birds, and even small mammals. Discover the fascinating world of these busy and important animals and how they keep us all well-fed!
