Las Vegas Library system seeking private sources of funds

Library system seeking private sources of funds comes in via The Resourceshelf.
After failing to secure public dollars to expand the county's library system, district officials are now turning to private sources for help.

An ambitious plan to raise $30 million in private money over 10 years will be presented to Las Vegas-Clark County Library District trustees on Thursday.

The money would be used to add programs and update outmoded facilities at the county's 24 libraries.

"If people waited for the right time to go out and ask people to support them philanthropically, it would never be done," said Suzanne Hackett-Morgan, development director for the library district. "This is a trend among public libraries to start private library foundations to augment their funding."
