“Construction of the library, breaking ground at that library location; it was quite a big deal 20 years ago when the library opened up there at the Rood Center.”

 The Friends of Nevada County Libraries Vice President Ingrid Knox says people will also have a chance to win Harry Potter Caricatures by just visiting the library between now and the anniversary party.

“There are some large, life sized characters from Harry Potter that were used last year in a ‘Wild About Harry’ program and we’re raffling those off and the way you get tickets is you come to the Madelyn Helling library only. You get one ticket per each visit. It’s free and you put your name, plus the character you want and we’re going to have a drawing after the program on the 20th to see who can take home those characters.”
