Dec. 12 Truckee discussion: Future of libraries in the digital age
November 30, 2016
Tahoe Silicon Mountain, a network of technology professionals who live and work in the Tahoe-Truckee area, is pleased to welcome Tara Radniecki and Chrissy Klenke to present: "Beyond Books: How Libraries of the Digital Age Can Foster Innovation and Entrepreneurship."
Libraries have always been a place where anyone with the desire to learn could access knowledge in their community. Historically quiet study spaces providing access to books and journals, cutting edge libraries are now a more vibrant hub of learning, collaboration, and innovation where 3D printers and laser cutters can be found alongside books.
Tara Radniecki, Engineering Librarian, and Chrissy Klenke, Geosciences Librarian, at the DeLaMare Science & Engineering Library at the University of Nevada, Reno, work with students, faculty, and members of the greater northern Nevada community to find information, prototype innovations, develop new literacies, and support teaching and learning on campus.
Radniecki and Klenke will discuss how the DeLaMare Library has recently transformed into a space that truly fosters learning, innovation, and entrepreneurship by providing not only on-site and lending maker equipment, but also expert consultations on 3D modeling, design, intellectual property and more.

The meeting will be on Monday, Dec. 12, 6-8 p.m. at Pizza on the Hill, in Tahoe Donner at 11509 Northwoods Blvd., Truckee.
