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 access the Library's databases?  Do you have students who live in Henderson, North Las Vegas or Boulder City? Your student can 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.

Students who live in the remaining areas of Clark County, may obtain a library card which will allow them to access all the library's databases.

  • How your local library can help you.  Library staff can visit your classroom, arrange a tour of the public library, participate in a school event, or meet with your parents. We serve the public and private schools in our service area, and homeschoolers.
