Your Guide To Libraries Across Las Vegas

By

One of the first things many new residents do is find the closest library. While Las Vegas has literally thousands of other things to do, a great library system has been shown to be one of the most effective ways of educating and entertaining all levels of citizens, from kids just about to enter school to seniors looking to keep their minds fresh.

The Clark County Library District not only has books, magazines, newspapers, but music, movie, Wi-Fi and computer labs.There are even eBooks available for temporary download to a variety of tablets.
