Established in 1971, the Friends is an independent organization that supports the Truckee Library.
The mission of the Friends of the Truckee Library is to focus community attention on the continuing value and health of our library as a cultural, educational, and recreational asset. The Friends sponsor cultural community events such as Poetry Readings, Publishing Workshops, year-round Book Sales, Best Sellers books, and "Truckee Reads," a town-wide reading project with a weekend of book discussions and programs. The Friends promote and support the Library’s offerings for children such as the Winter and Summer Reading Programs. The Friends raise money throughout the year to fund these and other projects for the Truckee Library. Gifts to the Friends of the Truckee Library are tax-deductible.
This Committee is mandated to review, advise and monitor the library’s revenues, expenditures, and services.
