- If the books are stamped Henderson District Public Libraries and they are dropped in the drops pictured here they will be returned on your library account daily.
- If the books are stamped Las Vegas Clark County Library District and they are dropped in the drops pictured here they may not post to your account for several weeks.
Why is this? It's sort of complicated, but to make a long story short -- there is limited courier service from the Las Vegas Library District to any Henderson District Public Library, meaning that there is slow transfer of materials from one district to the other. The Henderson District Public Libraries courier truck goes to the main Las Vegas Library once a week with materials belonging to the Las Vegas Clark County Library District. Once these books arrive they are returned and Las Vegas library accounts are updated. From time to time this results in overdue fines posting to library cards held by Las Vegas library patrons.
Because of this reason the Henderson Libraries strongly discourages the returns of Las Vegas Clark County materials to these book drops.
Bottom line is: if you have books marked Las Vegas Clark County Library District please save yourself some trouble and return them to a Las Vegas Clark County Library Location. The closest libraries in the county district are:
