Las Vegas-Clark County Library District Offers Free Econtent to Transit Riders

The Las Vegas-Clark County Library District (LVCCLD) and the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) are providing transit riders with free access to digital content—movies, ebooks, audiobooks, and magazines—via OverDrive’s Libby app. Those riding buses in the RTC’s Southern Nevada service area can download the app to get library content at any time during their commute by using RTC Wi-Fi. All they need to do is enter their mobile number, and the library verifies and it and grants them access. They can also get the app by scanning one of the QR codes placed at RTC transit centers, buses, and bus shelters.

“Our mission is to connect with the public, wherever they are, and enable them to enjoy the library's digital collection,” says Kelvin Watson, LVCCLD’s executive director. “Our partnership with the RTC introduces new audiences to the educational, entertaining, and life-changing resources that the library offers every day. This opportunity makes it easy for riders to learn more about our programs and offerings, then visit one of our branches in person for an upgrade to a free all-access library card, and enter our wonderful world of discovery!”

Conversely, M.J. Maynard, RTC’s CEO, notes, “We are excited about this meaningful collaboration with the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District to bring the library straight to our transit riders who may not have the ability to access a library location.”
