YOUR CITY WORKS FOR YOU!
The city of Las Vegas has made great progress in dealing with its budget over the last few years to ensure the city remains financially stable, while also maintaining high customer service levels. Thanks to residents’ feedback, some services have actually been restored or added, and the results over the last six months have shown positive impacts on the community.
Over the next few months, we’ll be sharing stories about how these restored and new services are benefitting you. Our first story affects not just humans, but their four-legged friends. Visit the city’s website to learn more!

Each day each branch will offer a hands-on learning experience, i.e., the art of New Zealand Maori native people, Japanese Bamboo traditional watercolor painting, Tibetan sand mandalas on velour paper, or creating figure sculpture from wire.
