Library Board Trustee Carol Reese says, "Love your library? Tell a friend!"

Trustee ReeseIntroduce your friends, family and neighbors to the benefits of having a library card. Encourage them to sign up for one through April 30, or if they already have a library card, like us on Facebook, and they’ll be automatically entered for a chance to win a gift basket of official merchandise from the blockbuster exhibitions Bodies…The Exhibition and Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition! Both exhibitions are currently located at the Luxor Las Vegas.
 
Library cardholders will receive an exclusive discount admission price of $16 for adults, seniors and children to each exhibit through May 31, 2013. Simply present your library card at the Atrium Level Box Office at the Luxor Las Vegas to receive this special offer. For more information, please call 262-4400. 

Bodies...The Exhibition showcases over 100 real human specimens that have been meticulously and respectfully preserved and displayed to allow visitors the opportunity to see first-hand the beauty and intricacies of the human form. Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition features authentic artifacts and full-scale recreations of the most famous ship in history allowing visitors of all ages to become enraptured in the story of the final voyage of the RMS Titanic.
 
Just tell your friends, family and neighbors to stop by any Las Vegas-Clark County Library District branch to fill out an application or apply online.
