LAS VEGAS-CLARK COUNTY LIBRARY DISTRICT ANNOUNCES TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF BRANCHES & CURBSIDE SERVICES BEGINNING DECEMBER 16
Pandemic precautionary measures taken to protect library staff & customers
Reopening with full library services scheduled for January 4, 2021
The Las Vegas-Clark County Library District will temporarily close its 25 branches and Curbside Pick-Up services beginning Wednesday, December 16, 2020, and anticipates reopening with full services on Monday, January 4, 2021. The Library District is taking this proactive measure to do its part in helping to stem the increasing spread of the COVID-19 virus across the Las Vegas Valley.
Free WiFi remains available in all Library District parking lots. Customers can return all books and materials at library branch book drops during the closure. Fines for late items will be waived.
“Closing our libraries is a difficult decision, as our mission is to serve the public, particularly during these challenging times,” said Fred James, acting executive director of the Library District. “We have closely followed the governor’s guidelines to remain open and provide much-needed services, such as student tutoring and distance learning programs, and career support services for those who may be looking for a job. However, with the escalating infection rate, we feel it is imperative that we temporarily close, out of an abundance of caution for our most vulnerable employees and customers.”
The Library District plans to reopen its doors in time for the start of school on January 4, 2021. This will be contingent upon any future directives from the governor’s office.
