Las Vegas-Clark County Library District Executive Director Kelvin Watson's newest blog post spotlights BiblioBoard, a new, innovative software platform, which allows the Library District to offer statewide free access to the eBook graphic novel, What Unites Us: Reflections on Patriotism by legendary news anchor Dan Rather, with no wait or hold times. It’s available now until August 27, 2021, and offers a great way to learn about the bedrock values of freedom and liberty that formed and sustain our country in a fun, easy-to-read format for all age groups.
In addition to the full collection of eBooks, audiobooks, and magazines available through the Libby app by OverDrive, you will now be able to discover and access new streaming video services for free! This feature is available under the new Extras menu, and the best part is that this streaming content does not count against your monthly borrowing limit in Libby. You can find out more about these provided services and how to instantly access them from your smartphone or tablet below:

Summer is a time to make learning fun by giving kids and teens the freedom to explore new activities and to read whatever they like. The Library District’s annual Summer Challenge program gives them the motivation to follow their own interests and prevent school skills from sliding during the long summer break. It’s also the perfect antidote to the “I’m bored” blues that can set in, keeping young minds challenged and horizons expanding. This year’s Summer Challenge theme is POWER UP YOUR ROBOT, and I’m proud to say that we had over 500 attendees at our kickoff at the East Las Vegas Library. We registered over 2,000 sign-ups in the first few days.
