A New Truckee Library

Truckee is a dynamic, growing town that deserves a library to match its vibrant population. A needs assessment report commissioned by the Friends of the Library in 2014 indicates that Truckee needs a library facility between 16,500 and 19,250 square feet in size to provide meet the needs of our growing community. Our current Truckee Library is just over 5,000 square feet.

With 48,000 patron visits per year, our library continues to be a critical resource for the Truckee community. But due to the cramped quarters, lack of seating and technology and limited children's area, we are not able to meet the needs of a large portion of our population. 

Help Truckee get the library we deserve.

The best of my education has come from the public library. My tuition fee is a bus fare and, once in a while, five cents a day for an overdue book. You don’t need to know very much to start with, if you know the way to the public library.
