Program 1

The Las Vegas-Clark County Library District serves a vibrant and diverse population of 1.3 million and growing. It includes the city of Las Vegas and the majority of the unincorporated communities across the Mojave Desert, stretching from Mesquite in the northeastern-most part of Clark County to Laughlin in the south. Through its 24 branch libraries, its more than two million books, audio, video and digital resources, and state-of-the-art technology, the Library District provides free and easy access to information and the opportunity for lifelong learning, cultural awareness and basic literacy. In 2003, the District was named Gale/Library Journal's "Library of the Year," an award that honors the North American library that most profoundly demonstrates innovation and service to the community and the best use of public funds. The Las Vegas-Clark County Library District Foundation is building the "Fund for Excellence," a permanently restricted endowment whose earnings annually support: - Engaging programs promoting reading for children, teens and their families - Readings and performances by well-known authors and artists - Affordable rates for community use of library theatres and meeting rooms - Capital improvements to library branches - Special initiatives, such as High-Performance Homework Help Centers serving K-8 students and their parents and caregivers; the Storytime Team family literacy program; and literacy programs helping adults improve their English language, workplace, and computer skills
