Henderson Library Getting Ready to Move

HENDERSON - Book lovers will have to plan their check-outs if they use the James Gibson Library in Henderson.

The current location on Water St. in downtown Henderson will close on Saturday, May 15th, but only so all the books can be packed up and moved to a new location. The new Gibson Library will open July 1, at Lake Mead Pkwy., near Boulder Highway.

"As a result of the economy, more people than ever before are in need of the services public libraries provide," said Tom Fay, executive director for Henderson Libraries. "This new, more visible and accessible location will allow us to further expand our reach throughout the Henderson community and continue our mission to cultivate a literate community by providing every citizen free access to books and information."

The new library will feature a drive thru window for requested material, a computer lab for up to 25 users, a teen area and larger rooms for library programming. At 19,919 square feet, the new building will be 4,000 square feet larger than its older counterpart, and there is space on the site to add an additional 7,300 square feet in the future. The new site provides better visibility and more parking to accommodate the library's increasing popularity.
