Beleaguered Local Library Gets A Lifeline

Aug 14, 2015

A library in northeast Reno will stay open after Washoe County backed off plans to shutter the branch. Reno Public Radio's Julia Ritchey reports. 

The Washoe County Library System threatened to close the Duncan-Traner branch last month, citing low use. 

But neighborhood residents protested the move, saying the the branch served an important function to one of the city's lowest income neighborhoods. 

The library is operated jointly with nearby Glenn Duncan Elementary School, but is only open two days a week after years of budget cutbacks.
