From its location high on the south slope of Peavine Mountain, Northwest Reno Library boasts beautiful views of the mountains to the south, east, and west. Opened in June 1999, the award-winning, 30,000-square-foot library offers a broad collection of resources, computer technology, and multi-generational programs to enhance personal enrichment and to support lifelong learning.

This library's growing collection, approximately 95,000 items in a variety of formats, includes the Shia Szrut Holocaust Studies Memorial Collection, which contains literature on the Holocaust of World War II for teachers, students, and the public.

Public computers are available for internet access, research, and word processing tasks. Wireless internet access is also available.

Programs ranging from Toddler Time, Preschool Story Time, and Family Fun Nights for children and parents, to adult book discussions and the nationally known "Lifescapes: Senior Writing Program" are available for free throughout the year.

Other special features:

  • Northwest Reno Library Art Gallery hosts international, regional, and local artists
