Easily one of the best bars in town. They're pretty involved in the community so the Reno event calendar fills this place to capacity. The bartender's will keep pulling 'em down for you no matter how busy they get. Highly recommend the local comedy nights they put on too. Ultimately there is always something going on and it's been a great place for many years, which is something that just won't change.

About us

Drink specials! Monday night — are daily. The bar holds 24 drafts. Well drinks are poured with Jim Beam and Smirnoff, not plastic-handle knockoffs. Not thirsty? Walk past the bar, relax on a couch and experience the best hookah lounge in town. Visitors play beer pong and pool in the back as college students smoke hookah and out-of-towners view local art — updated each month — on display.

The Library provides a safe environment and is Reno’s only bar with such diverse accommodations. The Library is home to the Reno Beer Crawl. RBC has evolved into one of the most popular monthly events downtown. RBC takes place 2-6 p.m. the fourth Saturday of every month. It begins at Reno’s most accommodating bar: The Library.

The Library maintains a zero-tolerance policy against serving alcohol to minors. This stance is strictly enforced with ID card scanners at the door. Belligerent and offensive activity is prohibited.
