Family Room: Monday – Friday, 10 am – 12 pm at Truckee Elementary

The Family Room is an interactive space centered around reading for children under the age of three years and their parents. It allows for pre-school-aged children to learn and socialize in a group setting, exposing them to new activities and readying them for pre-school. The Family Room also includes a lending library of both English and Spanish books for sharing in the cozy, colorful environment. We are excited to see you in the Family Room!
