All Las Vegas-Clark County Library District branches will be closed on Monday, May 27 for Memorial Day. They will reopen at their usual times on Tuesday, May 28.
We invite the public to take part in the Big Library Read, a pilot program in which libraries worldwide offer a single eBook to their cardholders. The program is designed to unite library patrons from all around the world. From May 15 to June 1, anyone with a valid District library card can borrow the eBook The Four Corners of the Sky by New York Times bestselling author Michael Malone for free from the Library’s website and read it on all major devices, including Kindle® and iPad®.
Over 7,500 libraries in 10 countries from five continents are participating. Readers are invited to join the book discussion on Twitter using #BigLibraryRead.
Registration for Club Read, our free program designed for kids and teens to read, earn prizes and have fun, begins Saturday, June 1 and continues through Saturday, August 3. Stop by any library branch to pick up a reading log or register online.
Children from birth to 11 years of age have one log, and teens in grades six and up have a different log just for them. Kids and teens can earn prizes by keeping track of their reading. Every child who signs up for Club Read will get a membership card and a special wallet to put it in! (more…)

The new Big Library Read initiative is a joint effort between Sourcebooks, OverDrive and public libraries worldwide. It’s a unique program (May 15-June 1) designed to unite the world in reading the same eBook title at the same time and to demonstrate the influence library patrons (you) can have. We already know the power of libraries – this is a unique way to let the rest of the world know! (more…)
