North Valleys Library celebrates 40 years

By ThisIsReno


library-logoThe Stead Library and three bookmobiles began operating from a site in Stead in 1973.  The collection and original staff relocated to its present site in June 1988.   Originally named the Peavine Branch Library, a tribute to the striking natural feature in our North Valleys community, it was changed to the North Valleys Library after 10 years to better represent the community it serves.

“It has been our honor to serve this community for the past 40 years,” says Managing Librarian Patti Day.  “We thank you for your support and invite you to join us in this celebration.”

There will be a special open house on Saturday, June 8, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.  Programs and activities that day include the following:

  • Paws 2 Read 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
  • Animal balloons 12 p.m. – 2 p.m.
  • Baseball story time with Reno Aces Archie 1 p.m. – 2 p.m.
  • Cake/dessert walk hourly
  • Raffle prizes
  • Cake served from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

The North Valleys Library is at 1075 North Hills Blvd, Suite #340, in Golden Valley.  For more information on the anniversary events, please call 775-972-0281.
