Tahoe-Truckee Lib Loop: Be sure to check out the Tahoe Collection

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — If you were to ask me where my favorite spot is at the Incline Library, I would want to answer with the Children's Library. Seriously, who doesn't want to sit around and build super cool things with colorful blocks?!

But, then I realize I am a grown-up and people probably want a grown-up answer, so my "grown-up" answer is the Tahoe Collection. The Tahoe Collection features all things Tahoe from Stone Age to the present, all dotted with photography books of Lake Tahoe with the most amazing pictures of this beautiful, tiny, world-class dot on the map we get to call home.

Come on over! There is bound to be something that will peak your interest.
