Lyon Libraries Makes Cents!

The Fernley Branch Library Makes Cents!

The Fernley Branch Library needs your help! The Lyon County Library System is launching a fundraising challenge to run from Labor Day 2011 to Memorial Day 2012. Our challenge is to raise 100,000,000 (one million) cents, or the equivalent of $10,000 in that time. The funds collected will go to the Lyon County Library System Gift Fund and will be used to directly supplement the cost of new library books and materials for all five Lyon library locations.

It has been no secret that over the past few years of economic downturn, the Lyon County Library System has experienced dramatic cutbacks to its budget. At the same time our branches are reaching record numbers for daily traffic and requests for service from our neighbors. We are now asking for a little help from our community in our mission to continue to offer superior Lyon County Library information and recreation services on a consistent basis. If every library patron donated just one penny each time they visited the Fernley Library we would race to the forefront of this mission!

The fun part of this challenge is that the Fernley Branch Library is in friendly competition with its sister-branches. The first branch to reach their individual goal of collecting $10,000 will receive a special allocation of funds to spend solely on their own branch! We will offer exciting opportunities for you to contribute to this fundraising challenge including free family movie nights, raffle prizes, read-a-thons, and other fun programming. If you’d like more information about this or other Fernley Branch Library programs and services please contact us at (775) 575-3366.

The Fernley Branch Library is located at 575 Silver Lace Blvd., Fernley, Nevada 89408. Telephone: (775) 575-3366. The Library is open Tuesday – Thursday 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.; Friday 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.; Saturday 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Find us on

We will be kicking off our annual Summer Reading Program (SRP) on Saturday, June 11, 2011 at the Fernley Branch Library at noon!  Come join us to eat pizza (free while it lasts), sign up for the program, get your goodie bag and check-out items to get you started toward your reading goal this summer.

This program is open to readers and listeners of all ages from Pre-K to adult.  The program is totally free, the only requirement is registration so that we may count you in our program statistics for future donations and financial support from our sponsors.

We will offer several passive craft programs for kids. Some pre-registration for workshops is required.

This year our goal is to get our adult readers participating in the program, as they traditionally are the ones who do not take advantage of this great program.  Help us meet our goal and take a moment to sign up starting June 11, 2011.

Readers who meet program benchmarks will qualify for raffle prizes and other goodies.

For more information please contact the Fernley Branch Library at (775) 575-3366 or visit us at 575 Silverlace Blvd., Fernley, NV  89408.

This program is made possible to our community thanks to donations from the Friends of the Fernley Branch Library and their local partners.
