Las Vegas-Clark County Library District Announces Construction of
New 40,000 sq. ft. West Las Vegas Library

Doubling the Size of Existing Branch
To Serve as New Hub for Literacy, Learning & Community

The West Las Vegas Library has served as a community anchor to the Historic Westside for 50 years. In celebration of this important milestone, the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District has announced that a new state-of-the-art West Las Vegas Library branch will be constructed at 1861 N. Martin Luther King Blvd. - slated to open in fall 2025.

Like the previous two Historic Westside library branches that opened before it (the original on "D" Street in 1973, and the current location on West Lake Mead Boulevard in 1989), this new building will be a place where our children, grandchildren, and generations to come can come to enjoy story times, arts and cultural events, live performances, after-school tutoring, and STEAM activities. To meet the needs of this culturally diverse community, the new West Las Vegas Library is more than doubling its current size, expanding to 41,178 square feet, to provide more educational resources and programs for literacy, learning, heritage-based celebrations, and fun experiences of all kinds for all ages!

The new building will be constructed on a 5.25-acre parcel, located at Martin Luther King Boulevard and Mount Mariah Drive, which was obtained with the help of the City of Las Vegas. This expanded acreage will allow for convenient parking and outdoor events.
