The Truckee Library services Eastern Nevada County through a unique facility and an extensive collection of materials. Over the years, the Truckee library has gone through multiple expansions, creating additional spaces for audio-visual materials, a children’s room, and the adult non-fiction collections. The result is a library that is a treat to explore! Visit the Truckee Library and browse through the dedicated Friends of the Library sale space, the separate mystery and science fiction collections, or climb up the spiral staircase to find a quiet reading spot.
Truckee’s History Alive!
Thursday, Sept. 18th at 7pm: A local history program series to delight and enlighten our community
The Truckee Library, the Friends of the Truckee Library, and the Truckee Donner Historical Society welcome Old Caleb Greenwood—a 19th-century mountain man and the human metaphor for the opening of the West—here in Truckee to tell his tale of meeting Chief Truckee, leading wagons over Donner Pass, and spinning yarns about Donner Lake. Frank X. Mullen, who will portray Caleb Greenwood Chautauqua-style, is a Reno investigative journalist, historian and author of The Donner Party Chronicles. Check it out!
SPANISH STORYTIME at the TRUCKEE LIBRARY
Join us at the Truckee Library every last Saturday of the month for bilingual storytime. Story reader Reyna Sanchez-Lopez will present lively books and activities to introduce children to the wonders of reading and the treasure of books at the Library. Come to sing songs, learn rhymes, hear stories, and get library cards for yourself and your children.
Truckee resident Reyna Sanchez-Lopez has worked as an instructor of independent living skills to the disabled, as an advisor to the Nevada County Library Literacy Service concerning health education, and you may have seen her greeting you at KidZone.
