Las Vegas Library Circulation Changes

The Las Vegas - Clark County Library District has made some changes to their circulation policies. Starting today, the item limit increases to 50; you can request up to 20 items; items may be renewed up to 3 times; and your fine threshold is now ten dollars.

50 items checked out may seem like a ton of books. But, it is easy to reach this limit if you have kids who all want different things. It is always a good thing to keep a variety of books around to keep the kids interested in reading. Some other good tips from Reading is Fundamental are:

* Have children choose their own books as soon as they start showing a preference for one over another.

* Find out what your child is interested in, and help choose books that are related to his or her interests.

* Ask friends, family, and teachers what books their children have enjoyed; try a book swap.

* If your child does not like a book you are reading together, put it away. Reading is a fun time to share, not a time to fight.

* Again, Again, Again! Children may want to read the same book many times, even if you think they have outgrown it.

* Try out different kinds of books to see what appeals to your children.

* Have fun! Show your children the joy of reading and how it can open up a brand new world!
