A Truckee Library for Now and the Future
Join the Friends of the Truckee Library for a special evening with guest speaker Susan Hildreth to envision a new library for Truckee.

No longer just an amenity, the public library is a key partner in sustaining the educational, economic and civic health of a community. It is a welcoming space for a wide range of purposesreading, communicating, learning, playing, meeting and doing business. Its physical presence provides an anchor for economic development and neighborhood revitalization, and helps to strengthen social bonds and community identity.

Join us on Saturday, October 21 from 5:30-7:30 pm at the Donner Memorial State Park Emigrant Trail Museum. Drinks, hors d'oeuvres and museum tour from 5:30-6:30, followed by a presentation from guest speaker Susan Hildreth on the changing role of libraries and a discussion on the vision of a new library for Truckee.
