Resilience is the capacity to bounce back, to pick yourself up from even the deepest depths and put one foot in front of the other. Resilience is an invaluable skill that sets you up for a lifetime of success. Your library carries hundreds of self-help books on building and repairing the inner self, to help you rebound from illness, job loss, a bad break-up, and most difficult of all, the loss of a loved one. Ready to turn on your own resilience? Try these guides for practical advice.
In partnership with AARP, the Library District is proud to provide free tax assistance to Southern Nevada residents over the age of 18 this season. Due to increased safety measures and COVID-19 restrictions, tax assistance sessions are limited and by appointment only. AARP has set up dedicated appointment phone numbers for each library location. Please listen carefully to the pre-recorded message as each appointment phone number has site-specific instructions and timelines. Please leave a message and calls will be returned in the order they were received.

Fall is here. We should be trading recipes for our next big tailgate bash and posting first day of school pictures. But this fall is not normal, and if you’re feeling out of sorts about it, you are not alone! And consider this … you might be grieving for things that aren’t what they once were. Even if you have been fortunate enough not to have lost someone you love to this virus, you still have experienced valid losses in your everyday life. On this note, I want to remind you that your library is always here to help.
