Henderson, Nevada – Some of our fave community spaces / third places are the Henderson Library system – hendersonlibraries.com. Each has its own personality: Paseo Verde (702) 492-7252, Gibson (702) 565-8402, Green Valley (702) 207-4260, and Heritage Park (702) 207-4258.
These venues are also currently closed due to COVID19, though some have curbside pickup in June 2020.
Libraries are more than books and this system offers community meeting spaces, genealogical research, computer classes, reading clubs, and more. We are big fans of the monthly book sales held by the Friends of Henderson Libraries.
UPDATE: Henderson Libraries is now closed until further notice. Hold on to anything you have checked out as our book drops are also closed. We've extended due dates & there will be no late fees. Give our digital resources a shot: https://t.co/6JIsMW0dnv. Stay safe, friends! 💙🧡

The Gibson library was named after former state assemblyman and senator, James I. Gibson (father of current County Commissioner Jim Gibson).
