Open hours at four branches of the Washoe County Library will be changing as of January 7, 2019. Changes will affect hours at the Downtown Reno, Duncan/Traner, Incline Village, and Sierra View libraries.

There will be increased hours at three branches, including the restoration of 7-day service to the Downtown Reno branch. Other changes include opening half an hour earlier on Wednesdays at the Duncan/Traner Community Library and expanding Tuesday evening hours at Incline Village. The Sierra View Library will no longer offer service on Sundays, but will have expanded Monday hours to meet the demand for library services.
