October 16-22 is National Friends of Libraries Week.
We hope you take this opportunity to support Friends of Washoe County Library. Established in 1980, this all-volunteer organization raises funds for the library system through membership dues, donations, and periodic book sales.
Become a member or donate online now, or shop the Friends' Amazon store. You also have a few more days to attend this month's book sale, held in the Reno Town Mall, next-door to the Sierra View Library.
National Friends of Libraries Week is coordinated by United for Libraries, a division of the American Library Association, which supports those who govern, promote, advocate, and fundraise for libraries.
