There’s a new place in central Las Vegas for people find something to read.
The Las Vegas-Clark County Library District announced Thursday that it has placed a new library kiosk at Boulevard Mall on Maryland Parkway.
Gov. Joe Lombardo and other officials took part in a ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday morning for the mobile library.
“A lot of people have transportation inability. They don’t have the time ability” to visit a traditional library branch, Lombardo said. “And this brings it to them. It opens up the doors.”
The mobile library, which works like a vending machine, was installed in partnership with the mall and the Latin Chamber of Commerce.
“To see now that a kid can come in here and get a book and read … I don’t know what’s bigger than that,” said chamber president Peter Guzman. “I’m hoping to see thousands of these machines all over the United States. I’m hoping this thing can go viral.”
