Tahoe-Truckee Lib Loop: Getting ready for the busy summer season
It’s finally here! Now that Memorial Day is finished, we can all get down to the business of summer visitors.
Of course we all love our summer visitors, but some of you might need to have some downtime after this first busy holiday to prepare for the coming groups of friends and relatives.
Even the libraries are a bit quiet before gearing up all the big activities in July and August. But they are always there for audio books (waiting in traffic a bit?), beach/pool reads and of course that bestseller you never got around to reading during your busy year so far.
Also, we have DVDs to keep the kids busy while the adults reconnect! The Incline Library also provides a wagon full of paperbacks at the Burnt Cedar pool. If you don’t see it, ask.
