It's been a while since I've been to the Aliante library but it is a smaller library and they didn't have a very big selection. It was new at the time so things may have changed.

It sounds like you have a condo already picked out in Aliante. Really you could access the Centennial library and facilities as they are only 10 minutes away.

I don't have anything picked out yet, but Sky Pointe and Terrasini condos look promising. I am still open to several different neighborhoods.
Maybe they will add some east-west bus routes in the area in a few years. It is unusual for a library to not be within reach of public transit.

I think the Aliante library is more of a community library so that might be why it's not part of a route. It is not as big as the other libraries.

Centennial Hills also has a million sq foot mall that is going to be built. However, with the economy being what it is who knows when that will happen. If anything you are in a win-win situation and it will probably just boil down to what you like when you get here to look around. I personally like the feel of Centennial Hills better.

It kind of looks like Centennial Hills is going to have more going on nearby with the medical center there now and the community college and big shopping mall coming down the road. Maybe it it will be the better place for me especially if I would like to eventually go without a car and mostly hang around the immediate area. The shuttle to the strip would also be convenient even if I was going to the airport.
I could take the shuttle to the strip and then a hotel shuttle to the airport instead of multiple buses or an expensive taxi from Aliante.

Keep in mind those projects are on hold because of the economy. However the shuttle that runs to the Strip is up and going now. They built a hub/park and ride with a nice parking lot) for buses just off of Elkhorn/Durango by Smiths. Which is also where the community college will be. The mall will be behind the hospital. If and when.

I really hope that they get going on that mall. I would never have to leave Centennial Hills. The mall will also have a movie theater and outside areas.

That's fine that it's delayed as long as they are coming in the next 5 years or so.

By the way Aliante is in a different library district. (North Las Vegas) That may be why it felt smaller. The Centennial Hills library is in the city of Las Vegas.
