In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, access to Prim Library is limited and masks are required at all times.
Inter-library loan service for print books is temporarily paused, but the circulation desk is open with limited hours. Please see the LibGuides for the most current details.
We are unable to provide services to the Incline Village community for the duration.
Student and Faculty Services
Our first priority is to continue to serve our students and faculty during this unpredictable period.
The library staff is available during normal working hours for help with off-campus database access, assist with research, or answer any other library questions. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or the library director, Lara Katrina Schott, at email@example.com. We will assist you via email, or we can arrange 1:1 research-appointments by phone if necessary.

The Poetry Center
Poetry Center Information
Sierra Nevada University’s Poetry Center in the Prim Library promotes an appreciation of contemporary American poetry with a collection of more than 3000 volumes, and presents programs of public readings and workshops by such poets as Poet Laureate of California Juan Filipe Herrera and award-winning poet Jane Hirshfield.
The Poetry Center is made possible through a grant awarded by the Nevada State Library and Archives and the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Like the library itself, the Poetry Center’s collections and programs are open to the general public and offer free access to all Nevada residents.
