Duncan Community Library Committee meeting
Chairman Darryl Feemster has called a committee
meeting for 5:30 p.m. this Thursday, Dec. 1, at the library.
We need to build turnout for next month's Washoe County Library Board
of Trustees meeting where expansion of the library's public hours
will very probably be on the agenda.

Community Library hours to increase
Reno-Sparks NAACP Duncan Library Committee
An increase in the Duncan Library hours is
on the menu. (See below.) Attend and support if you can.
You can also welcome a new member to the Washoe County Library Board
of Trustees, former Washoe County Commissioner and former chair
of the Nevada Sierra Club, Jean Stoess.
She succeeds her husband Al because of term limits (i.e., time on
the board, not as Jean's husband).
I've known these good folks for four decades. They are very patient
people. I know, because they will still talk to me.
Welcome, Jean, and thank you, Al, for your distinguished service.
Be well. Raise hell. But stay cool.
Andrew Barbano, First Vice-President
NAACP Reno-Sparks Branch No. 1112

"We do have sufficient staffing for the summer. The summer hours
will also help us make a better analysis of staffing going forward,"
This is critically
important. The mixed-use library principally serves Glenn Duncan
Elementary School and in recent years has only been open to the
general public four hours per week. It is a matchless resource for
the nearby northeast Reno community. Many of the senior residents
have no automobiles to transport them to other facilities miles away.
years ago, Darryl Feemster rallied former NFL players and local leaders
to build the facility which has suffered recessionary budget cuts
and survived two threats of closure under the previous administration.
