How the Library can help you

Curriculm Support
Staff in any of our Youth Services departments can select books and other resources to supplement your instruction. Call your nearest branch to make your request. Please allow 5 days for staff to pull materials prior to pickup.

How can my students use the Library's resources?  
Do you have students who live in Henderson, North Las Vegas or Boulder City? Your student can obtain a QuickStart Card (see below) or use the Statewide databases on the Find a Database by Topic page with his/her library card. Contact Ask a Librarian- to learn how they can access the other Library databases.

How your local library can help you. 
We serve the public and private schools in our service area, and homeschoolers. 

Library staff can visit your classroom, arrange a tour of the public library, participate in a school event, or meet with your parents. During these visits they can hand out QuickStart Cards to students who do not already have a LVCCLD Library card, including those students who live outside the LVCCLD taxing district.

The QuickStart Cards allow students to use online content -  including homework help databases, eBooks, eMagazines and more.

Call the Youth Department at your nearest branch, call the Outreach Department at (702) 507-6329, or contact us via email at Ask a Librarian- for more info.
