As we announced in our last edition of Library Highlights, Mr. Kelvin Watson has joined the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District as our new Executive Director. Kelvin has big plans for the Library District and to keep you up to date, he has established a new blog, “Kelvin’s Corner.” His first edition is ready for your review, with a tribute to our hard-working library staff and a look at some of the local leaders that he has been meeting with. An avid reader since childhood, Kelvin will soon start sharing with you some of his favorite reads, which are available to check out from our collection (many in digital formats, too). Don’t miss a single post!
