Though you may have found yourself relying much more on the Internet and tablets for reading books and gathering information, there is still one building that should always be on your list of places to go: The Library!

A library is the grand place where books live. For those that love reading and collecting literature, a library can be a magical place of the imagination. It's a great place to find volumes on almost every imaginable topic.

Incline Village readers are huge fans of visiting the local libraries, and yes many of you may not know this but our community has 2 libraries open to public.
