It’s National Library Week and we are celebrating!
Start here… help your library win!
During this week – April 8-14, visit the ProQuest Facebook page to enter Las Vegas-Clark County Library District into a drawing for a chance to win a $1,000, $500, or $250. LVCCLD can use it to promote the library, purchase resources, support programs, or whatever. Ask your colleagues and friends to enter to improve LVCCLD’s chance of winning. Official rules are available here.
Next: Try one of the Proquest databases we offer and let us know how you like it! Like our Fan Page, post a comment or like a post on LVCCLD’s Facebook page and then fill out the form on our Facebook’s Love Your Library tab and we will enter you in the Library’s Love Your Library grand prize drawing for a four packet of VIP tickets to Madame Tussauds Las Vegas.
Doing homework in your pajamas? Need information? Visit our online reference department – Gale Virtual Reference Library and get the information you need. As a bonus we added search boxes for all the other information resources. What’s cool? Search in one of the widgets, and you get information from the resource and as an added bonus information on the subject from our other resources. Don’t have a library card from LVCCLD? Then download our app – Access My Library - available for Apple and Android devices and select one of our libraries as your ‘home library’. (You have to be within 10 miles of one of our libraries). Once bookmarked you will have access anywhere.
September 18 marks the 160th anniversary of The New York Times. The daily newspaper has earned 106 Pulitzer Prizes and continues to report “All the News That’s Fit to Print.” For a look at the history of the rise of The New York Times, use International Directory of Company Histories. The story begins in 1896, when Adolph Ochs bought the struggling paper and redefined journalism with a new style of reporting. Read the first issue of the paper – September 1, 1851.
