The Nevada Author Project is back this spring! We are looking for local authors to enter their original work(s) of adult and/or young adult fiction for a chance to be recognized as the top indie-published eBook in Nevada. Winning authors will reach hundreds, if not thousands, of new readers, and can leverage being an award-winning indie author for additional marketing opportunities. This contest is a fantastic way to elevate your writing career and expand your readership.

There is not enough kindness in the world today. Turn on the news, glance at social media, view any online political forum, and the lack of civility is painfully clear.

Try something new and radical and, best of all, simple: Be kind.

New Way to Help Support the Library District Foundation!
The Las Vegas-Clark County Library District Foundation has introduced an easy-to-use new service that allows you to "Round-Up" and donate your spare change to help support critical library programs. You can set and control how much you want to give each month by setting a maximum limit, and every time you use your debit or credit card, we will automatically round up your purchases to the nearest dollar amount. For example, a purchase of $20.95 would round-up to $21, so you would be donating 5 cents (Minimum monthly round-up requirement of $9.99 to participate). You can also choose a one-time or monthly donation amount. By enrolling in this service, your small change from every day purchases can add up to big change for the community!
