Washoe County Library, City of Reno and Washoe County School District partner to open doors more hours.

June 9, 2016.  Reno, NV.  The Library Board of Trustees approved special summer hours for Duncan/Traner Community Library.  Starting June 13 through August 5 the library will be open Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. 

This is made possible through a collaboration with Glen Duncan Elementary and the City of Reno Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department. 

On the schedule this summer are three featured summer reading programs in the Glen Duncan Elementary Multipurpose Room and STEM/gaming/LEGO/movie activities in the library.  The special programs are as follows:

Tuesday, July 12:  2:30 p.m.
Bug Petting Zoo with Nevada Bugs and Butterflies
Millipedes, beetles, caterpillars, oh my!  This touch-and-feel program includes fun facts about where bugs live, what they eat and other aspects of their lives.

Thursday, July 21:  3:30 p.m.
Hubble Skateboards presents Books and Boards
One of a kind program brings the art of skating to the libraries, educating children about the ins and outs of the skateboard industry.  Come meet the Hubble Team

Thursday, July 28:  3:30 p.m.
Phenomenal Fitness Feats with Wild Things, Inc.*
Put your game face on while you get up close and personal with animals from around the world.  Game with a Golden Eagle, bond with a Burmese Python and more! (*All participants will need to sign a liability waiver in order to attend this program)

“Connect with the Duncan/Traner Community Library this summer,” says Jeff Scott, Library Director.  “We continue to work with the community to provide the services that are a best fit and providing access over the summer months is a big win for all involved.”

Additionally, we would like to thank the Board of Washoe County Commissioners.  In particular, Commissioner Marsha Berkbigler for her $10,000 contribution of district funds which will enhance services at the Duncan/Traner Community Library.  Some of the improvements will include improved signage, improved Wi-Fi, new technology, and other facility needs.

Washoe County Library is in the midst of a needs assessment for the area and hopes to find ways in which to offer a more permanent expansion of hours starting in January.
