The Las Vegas-Clark County Library District is proud to announce the grand opening of our beautiful, new East Las Vegas Library on April 25, 2019, located at 2851 E. Bonanza Road. The ribbon-cutting ceremony begins at 10 a.m. and the public is invited. The opening day celebration will feature activities and fun for all ages. This 40,000 sq. ft. building represents 21st century library design and is a milestone in the history of the East Las Vegas community.
Surrounded by 14 elementary schools, two middle schools, and three high schools, this new library will benefit thousands of young people by furthering their education. Customers will enjoy free WiFi, a Teen Zone, Tech Art Lab, and other hands-on tech opportunities; a Homework Help Center with free tutoring; a Toy Lending Library; and an outdoor play area. There will be over 1,000 programs per year in early childhood and parenting education; media production and makerspace labs; culinary and nutrition programs in our first-ever demonstration kitchen; STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math) projects; plus English language, high school diploma, and citizenship instruction; and so much more.
Career services will be offered at the One-Stop Career Center, including computer labs, skills training, and employment programs. The One-Stop mission is to move people into good-paying jobs and help small businesses with start-ups and expansions.
This new branch will also emphasize books and other popular materials in Spanish, including magazines and newspapers, plus bilingual resources for children. On LVCCLD.org, Pongalo currently offers Spanish-language movies and television. And remember, materials at the library are always free!
The multipurpose room is a large space available to enjoy educational lectures, personal and cultural enrichment, and social events. The public can rent this room for meetings, live performances, private parties, quinceañeras, and any special occasion.
