Why are some libraries closed the day before or after a holiday?
Pursuant to Washoe County Code section 5.231 plus certain contractual commitments, libraries are closed either the day following or the day preceding a County-observed holiday when that holiday falls on a day when these libraries are regularly not open. The library has neither sufficient staffing, nor the budget dollars to pay overtime, that would be required to keep these libraries open on these days. Washoe County Library staff thank you for your understanding and patience and we apologize for any inconvenience to you and your family.
