The Truckee Library is gearing up to participate in National Library Week with lots of fun activities for Truckee residents to enjoy. National Library Week runs from April 7th through April 13th. The week is observed by the American Library Association as a way to celebrate and promote the work of libraries throughout the country. Libraries across the U.S. will be finding ways to commemorate this occasion and the Truckee Library will be joining in on the fun.
Starting on Monday, April 8th the Truckee Library will be kicking off the week by partnering with Alibi Ale House at 10069 Bridge Street to host a "Not Your Parent's Library" program. Truckee residents are encouraged to stop by to try out the library's Oculus Rift Virtual Reality system and see the Replicator+ 3-D Printer in action. Library staff will be on hand from 4:30-7:30pm to give everyone the chance to try their hand at Virtual Reality and learn more about the library.
Further, because the library staff know they would be nothing without their patrons, the Truckee Library will be sure to celebrate them during the week as well. On Tuesday, April 9th the library will host a Patron Appreciation Party from 4-6pm to thank them for being a part of the library. The event will feature a photo booth and refreshments as well as the opportunity for all library patrons to feel special.
Finally, the week will end with a bang at a Library Open House on Friday April 12th from 4-6pm. Patrons will get a chance to see all the exciting items the library has available for the public. On display will be the Oculus Rift Virtual Reality system and the Replicator+ 3-D Printer as well as items available for check out such as the Orion StarBlast Telescope and AmScope 150 Series Microscope. Come learn more about the library, its collections, and meet the staff who are always ready to help.
The Truckee Library is located at 10031 Levon Ave in Truckee, CA and is open Monday through Saturday.
