Nestled high in the Sierras, along the shores of Lake Tahoe, the Incline Village Library serves a diverse community of local and visiting patrons. With a collection of over 47,000 items, including books, videos, DVDs, audio-books, CDs, CD-ROMs and magazines, this medium-sized library strives to offer a wealth of materials for all ages.
Although somewhat more isolated than most of the branches of the Washoe County Library System, patrons still have access to all WCLS's materials through its holds service and interlibrary loan. With daily deliveries from other branches, materials from any WCLS branch may be received or returned to any other branch, including Incline.
The Incline Village Library offers a wide range of programs. These include weekly family story time, holiday parties, a variety of special performers in music, dance and storytelling, Summer Reading Club, two Wednesday afternoon programs per month, and a popular adult/young adult reading group that meets the 3rd Wednesday of every month, where local and touring authors occasionally visit.
Additionally, the Incline Village Library provides five high-speed Internet stations featuring Windows 2000 and the full Office suite of programs. In August, 2005, the library will also offer an ADA compatible internet station, internet express station, two children's game computers and Wi-Fi access.
