My favorite moments of the holiday season are those small seconds of stillness in between hustle and bustle. The twinkling of lights, the hush after everyone falls asleep, the cold windows in the morning. Those moments are best shared with a book, of course, as we can always find time to read, even in this busy season. If you are a fan of cozy winter tales, with plenty of meet cutes and happy endings, the first half of this list is for you. If you lean more toward the Grinch before his heart grew three sizes, the second half of the list is all yours. There is hilarity to be found in those honest tales of holiday chaos. Either way, grab yourself a hot mug, find a cozy spot, and get into the holiday spirit with these great reads.
No matter what winter holiday you may celebrate, the Library District has something for everyone to get in the holiday spirit!

Since late 2017 I have been living in Bozeman, Montana, and in 2020, Santa Fe, New Mexico. Beginning in 2019, I began the experiment of working in color. I’m finding there are some similarities, but many differences as well. And this is fine, as I’ve always defined my job as “problem solving.” I’m ready for the challenge. The problem in this particular case was the issue of not liking my color landscapes. So I began to search for a solution of how to create a look that was illustrative of the landscape instead of literal representation of it. I want people to look at them and hesitate a moment and ask questions.
The Las Vegas-Clark County Library District’s permanent art collection started in 1974 with donations from local artists and library customers. Since that time, the collection has grown to over 400 works of art and become one of the most comprehensive collections of local art held by a public agency in Southern Nevada.
Abstract fields of color comprise José Bellver’s new drawing and painting exhibit titled A Conjugation of Light. The artist’s painted lines and rectangular forms subtly blend, transform, and glow like the sun along the desert horizon or the famed neon lights of Las Vegas.
Schoepp’s brimming mosaic photographs are a result of his technique layering multi-dimensional details specifically for capture through a camera lens. The intricate scenes revealed on high resolution film are designed to intrigue and create wonder for the viewer.
