RENO, Nev. (KRNV & -- The Washoe County Library, located at 301 South Center Street in Reno, was listed in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) on February 13, 2013.

The National Register is the nation’s official list of cultural resources worthy of preservation.

Completed in 1966, the library is significant to the social history of Reno and represents the city’s interest in and appreciation for art and architecture. The library was constructed as Reno transformed from a gambling and divorce town to a vibrant cultural community.

The Washoe County Library (known as the Downtown Reno Library) was designed by architect Hewitt Campau Wells.
