Libraries: A Safe Welcoming Space for All. The Social Fabric of a Community.

In 2019, our Truckee Library saw 1,000 new patrons. This increase includes visitors looking for a space to meet, to use computers, to use internet access, to utilize the wide-range of digital and print materials that are available at our local library. All of these services are offered for free.

On any given day, our librarians are supporting our community members. The parents that are homeschooling their children, the family that needs help completing their visa applications, the student who doesn't have access to the books others do, the homeless veteran that is working so hard to find a new job and needs help developing a resume. All of this support is offered for free.

Libraries are the life blood of a community: an accessible, equitable, safe, free space for all.  
Let's support this crucial community asset, together. 

We are Ready for a New Truckee Library.

The Truckee Library serves a community of over 17,000 people. With over 60,000 patron visits per year and 200 visitors per day, we need more space. Space for increased programming and technologies, new meeting rooms and study areas. A vibrant space for us all: to connect, to gather, to learn.

Be a part of something big! Help improve the lives of all members of our community. We’re building something special — a space that brings people together and bridges the divides of race, income, and education. A free, safe space for all to gather, learn, and grow.
Imagine the possibilities. 

To get there, we need your help!
