Washoe County Library System is excited to announce the grand reopening of the Sierra View Library, located at 4001 S. Virginia St. in the Reno Town Mall.

The community is invited to attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony and celebration, which will take place at the library on May 17, at 3 p.m. Members of the public are also welcome to attend the monthly meeting of the Washoe County Library Board of Trustees, which will immediately follow the event at 4 p.m.

The Sierra View Library, which opened in the Reno Town Mall in 1987, has been updated with new flooring, fresh paint, and a new back entrance. The back entrance will provide a convenient way into the library and mall and will soon be enhanced with an ADA-accessible lift. New internet computers are available and updated furniture is expected to arrive shortly.

Funding for the renovations was provided through a partnership with Washoe County, Washoe County Library System, and the Reno Town Mall as part of the new lease agreement. These improvements are part of an ongoing effort to ensure that a first-class library system is available to all.

The library system is also excited to announce that the next Friends of Washoe County Library book sale will go on as scheduled in the Reno Town Mall during the week of June 3-11. The Friends of Washoe County Library is a member-supported 501(c)(3) Nevada nonprofit organization dedicated to advocating, fundraising, and providing support for the Washoe County Library System.
