Support a Town-Operated Truckee Library at Town Council

Come out to support the Town of Truckee taking over management of the Truckee Library at the June 12 Town Council meeting. Local Truckee management of our library is a crucial next step to getting a new library for Truckee. 

We need to show the Town that the community supports a town-operated, locally-controlled library -- and a new and improved library, as well. Come show your support by submitting a public comment in person or in written form. If you can't attend, you may still submit a written comment expressing your support to jprice@townoftruckee.com .
