Approximately 100 people attended the Truckee Library’s grand re-opening Tuesday to celebrate a facility refresh with new flooring, paint, and furniture.
The public was able to view the library’s stained glass by artist Robert Boeddiker, which previously hung in the library’s West-facing window. As part of the library’s refresh project, the stained glass was restored by Rainbow Glass of Sacramento and now hangs in a lightbox over the mantle.
In addition to the refurbished art, the library features new furniture and carpet, an updated floor plan, and new shelving. The updated floor plan allows for an enlarged teen space and enhanced program options in the children’s section.
It was all smiles at the ribbon-cutting conducted in partnership with the Truckee Chamber of Commerce, with guests including leaders from the Town of Truckee, Friends of the Truckee Library, Tahoe Forest Hospital, County of Nevada, and many local children and families.
“We are pleased to be back in our refreshed library space," said Truckee Library Branch Manager Bobbi Luster. "It has been so rewarding for staff to receive positive feedback from the Truckee community on the lighter and brighter library. The new flooring, paint, and furniture combined with exciting programs are creating a new level of enthusiasm about our library services.”
Nevada County Librarian Nick Wilczek, adding that he would like to thank the library staff, the Town of Truckee, and the Truckee Friends of the Library for their support.
District 5 Supervisor Hardy Bullock echoed Wilczek's gratitude. "Thank you to our team who work to make our library a special place. The refresh is complete and the library awaits a visit from you!”
