Built in 1966, the Downtown Reno Library is a unique architectural gem serving as the urban hub of the Library System. Architect Hewitt Wells couldn't put the library in a park as he wished, so the library was made as park-like as possible, featuring hundreds of plants, several full-grown trees, and a pond with a fountain. The curved flowing lines of our building make it a delightful place to browse or sit down with a good book.

Our centrally-located library serves the downtown residential and business community with a variety of services-public WiFi, leisure reading, audiovisual materials including DVDs, books on CD, and computers with Internet access. We focus on the information needs of our patrons, with an extensive reference collection, a large topographic map collection, and our Nevada files containing thousands of articles relating to local news and history. We also house a federal and state government publication collection and have a complete collection of local newspaper microfilm. An auditorium with grand piano and an art gallery on the balcony round out our beautiful facility.

Whether you live here or are just visiting, we invite you to stop by and appreciate the Downtown Reno Library and all it has to offer.

The Downtown Reno Library won $500 for the "Coolest Interior Space" category in Gale-Cengage's Beautiful Library Contest! Thanks for your vote!

Federal Depository Library ProgramThis library is a congressionally designated depository for U.S. Government documents. Public access to the government documents collection is guaranteed by public law. (Title 44 United States Code).
