Henderson Libraries to take part in ArtFest of Henderson

Used book sale to benefit Henderson Libraries

HENDERSON, Nev. – Henderson Libraries will play an integral part in this year’s 13th annual ArtFest of Henderson, which will take place Mother’s Day weekend Saturday, May 8, and Sunday, May 9.

Henderson Libraries will staff a tent at ArtFest that will include a used book sale. The Friends of Henderson Libraries will sell $5 bags to be filled with as many used books as possible. Proceeds from the book sale will benefit Henderson Libraries.

The Gibson Library – located at 280 S. Water St., just off Basic Road – will be closed during ArtFest.

ArtFest of Henderson features work from more than 200 national and local artists as well as food and live entertainment for the entire family. Festivities will stretch down Water Street from Army Street to just past Basic Road and will include surrounding areas including the new Henderson Events Plaza and the Henderson Convention Center.

The event, which draws nearly 50,000 attendees, has become a Mother’s Day weekend tradition in Southern Nevada. It will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both weekend days.

Established in 1943 as a single library in Downtown Henderson, Henderson Libraries operates six locations throughout Henderson. Henderson Libraries cooperates with other public libraries in Southern Nevada, the Nevada System of Higher Education, the Clark County School District and all other libraries around the state to provide quality service for Nevada’s residents.
