Library Loop: Get outside this summer with your local library

Library services and programs aren’t contained to a library building. Your local Tahoe libraries take advantage of the great outdoors through free storytimes, Storywalks, and other programs to unite, educate and entertain our communities.

Both the Truckee and Tahoe City libraries offer StoryWalks in their communities. The Truckee StoryWalk can be read on the Legacy Trail, which runs along the Truckee River. The Tahoe City StoryWalk starts by the Farmer’s Market at Commons Beach and continues along Lake Tahoe. Take the family on a walk and enjoy the book Senorita Mariposa in Truckee and And Here’s to You in Tahoe City.       

A storytime occurs each Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. at the Truckee Regional Park next to the Farmer’s Market. Come hear stories, sing, dance, and blow bubbles. King’s Beach outdoor storytimes and other summer programming occur in the backyard of the King’s Beach Library. Storytimes start at 10 a.m. on Tuesdays.



On Friday, July 29, at 11 a.m., enjoy the “Powerful Pollinators” program in the backyard of the King’s Beach Library and build a mason jar bee house. Also, save the date for a free outdoor movie at Truckee Regional Market on Aug. 19 at 8 p.m., featuring The Incredibles. The movie is a collaboration between the Truckee Library and the Truckee Donner Recreation and Parks District.
