Panattoni Development, RHP Mechanical Systems donate to North Valleys Library
RENO, Nev. — Panattoni Development Company, in addition to RHP Mechanical Systems, announced May 21 their contribution of a hydration station to the North Valleys Library.
The newly installed hydration station is a combination filtered water drinking fountain and dispenser for filling reusable bottles.
The station encourages visitors to use more environmentally friendly containers, instead of disposable plastic bottles. RHP Mechanical Systems donated the hydration station and Panattoni Development Company donated the installation.
“It has been an honor to work with the Panattoni and RHP teams to make this gift happen for the North Valleys Library community,” said Jonnica Bowen, Branch Manager of North Valleys Library. “The library has been serving the North Valleys for more than 45 years, and consistently during that time one of the number one requests made by library users has been for a drinking fountain.
“No longer will we have to ask our customers to fill cups or prepare baby bottles from the bathroom sinks — now they can do it with our state-of-the-art, sanitary hydration station.”
The North Valleys Library, located at 1075 North Hills Blvd, Suite 340 in Reno, is a branch of the Washoe County Library System and serves many valley communities on the east and north side of Peavine Mountain. The branch went through a remodel in 2016, adding significant improvements to enhance services to visitors.
