Downtown Library Closed this Weekend for Remodeling


Renovations at the downtown Reno library are set to begin and it’ll be closed to the public April 13-16, according to the Washoe County Library System.

Improvements to public spaces are planned in the building at 301 S. Center St. Upgrades are expected to continue through the remainder of next week. The library is expected to reopen April 17.

Regular hours downtown are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. weekends.

Washoe County Library Director Jeff Scott said the upgrades are part of an ongoing effort to ensure a first-class library system for the community.

“These enhancements will improve customer service, expand the children’s area, relocate the internet terminals to allow for easier access, and centralize our customer service point of contact,”  Scott said in a statement. “We appreciate the community’s support during this process, and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.”

The library was built in 1966.
