Browsing is Back

The Library District Fully Opens Services & Browsing

While Maintaining Social Distancing & Safety Measures

Plus Free Access to Computers & WiFi • Art Galleries • Curbside Pick-Up Service

Come in, we’re open! Starting June 24, 2020, the Library District has fully reopened our in-branch services and activities just in time for summer reading and enjoyment, while adhering to safe social distancing guidelines. You told us that you missed browsing, and it’s back! You can also use our study rooms, enjoy limited seating (to allow for social distancing), and children and families are invited to join in the annual Summer Challenge program, where little ones, kids and teens can earn points for great prizes.

Other in-demand services that are fully open include computers and WiFi, One-Stop Career Center services for job seeking, art gallery exhibitions, Safe Place services for youth in crisis, and adult literacy and education courses, which include Career Online High School, the WorkKeys work readiness certificate, and the HiSet high school equivalency exam.

Looking ahead to July. The Library District will be bringing back our beloved storytimes, as well as adult classes in English as a Second Language and English Conversation, with other in-person educational programming following soon. Registration begins July 1.

The new normal. We know that you come to our libraries to learn, to grow, to find community, and to pursue your dreams, and we are here to help! For everyone’s health & safety, social distancing will be the “new normal” for the foreseeable future. Thank you for being patient with us as we figure this out together.

Safety & face coverings. Our primary concern is everyone's health & safety. Our 25 Library District buildings have undergone a deep cleaning an antimicrobial treatment on all surfaces. We are adhering to strict social distancing, reduced occupancy, and other guidelines set forth by government mandates. We have installed hand sanitizing stations and acrylic sneeze guards. All returned library materials undergo a four-day quarantine, and browsed items receive special handling.

Perhaps most importantly, all library staff are required to wear face coverings - and per Governor Sisolak's recent announcement - all library customers are also required to wear face coverings in order to enter our buildings. If you do not have a face covering, we will provide you with one.

So many ways to connect. We have missed you and we are here to serve you in this new environment. We also encourage you to stream and download materials at; enjoy our entertaining and educational library programs at; and take advantage of our Curbside Pick-Up Service.

*Curbside to go. This streamlined service makes it so easy to pick up your holds and drop off your returns. Simply place your holds online (or by phone) and call your branch, where our staff will help you make an appointment. Then drive, bike, or walk up to the designated curbside area, and you’ll get to take home a bit of normalcy. Click here for all of the details. We look forward to helping you make your next great discovery!
