The holiday season is a time for shopping, gift wrapping and giving. For the Henderson Libraries, the holidays are also for elegant tree displays, wreaths for sale and gift baskets on silent auction. All of the holiday favorites will be offered during the Sixth Annual Library Tree Lane Gala from 7-10 p.m. Friday, Dec. 4.
The Library Tree Lane Gala & Auction will feature wreaths as well as trees sponsored by Henderson businesses including RAFI, DPS Design and Levi Strauss. Last year’s Library Tree Lane Gala raised $20,000.
All proceeds from the silent auction and donations will benefit an expansion of the collection of books for beginning readers, children in kindergarten through third grade, for use in all Henderson Libraries locations.
Honorary Chair, Congresswoman Dina Titus will host the event at the Paseo Verde Library – located at 280 S. Green Valley Parkway near Paseo Verde Parkway and Green Valley Ranch Resort & Casino.
Guest authors are featured annually, and this year’s featured Vegas Valley authors will include Geoff Schumacher, Jack Sheehan, Norm Clark and D.J. Allen.
The reception will include hors d’ oeuvres provided by Emery’s La Barrista and will be hosted by Pere Noel. Special prizes will also be awarded during chance drawings throughout the event. Gala tickets are $25 per person, and can be purchased at the door or by calling 702-492-6584 to reserve.
The Friends of Henderson Libraries will host several events at Paseo Verde Library beginning Tuesday, Nov. 17, as part of Library Tree Lane. Events include a holiday Carr Chat celebrating Robyn Carr at noon on Friday, Nov. 20, and various children’s holiday programs. Trees and wreaths will also be showcased during regular library hours Nov. 17 through Dec. 4.
