LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - If you’ve missed stopping by your neighborhood library to pick up the latest book, movie, or music release, or to catch an educational program or live concert, you’ll be glad to know that the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District has announced a new service that will get you back in the library groove during the COVID-19 closure.

A new Curbside Pick-Up Service is now being offered for library customers to pick-up materials they have requested. This service will be available at 16 libraries of the District’s 25 locations while branches are closed. (Please go to LVCCLD.org/curbside for a list of the participating library locations and their addresses, phone numbers, and hours.)

Library materials can only be returned through the Library District’s outside book returns. No materials will be accepted through curbside or drive-thru window services. All late fees have been suspended until the Library District buildings are able to reopen safely. This will be determined based on guidance from Governor Sisolak and the Southern Nevada Health District.

To reserve items, library cardholders can either visit LVCCLD.org, or they can call their nearest branch. A librarian will be available on the line to help them to select the books, DVDs, and/or CDs they would like to check out. Their items will be placed on hold, and they will be given a designated date and time to come by the library to pick them up.

The county is also offering some visual stimulation as well. Just go to YouTube.com/TheLibraryDistrict and you will find Storytimes from librarians and from celebrities such as Michelle Obama, Rita Moreno, Daisy Ridley, Dolly Parton, Courtney B. Vance.

The library district also says that coming soon will be video STEAM classes, DIY projects and maker experiences, and topics for adults such as business development, health & wellness, food sustainability, financial literacy, social services, early childhood education, literacy, and unemployment assistance and job skills.
