The Friends of the Nevada County Libraries and the Nevada County Library System are hosting a reception on Thursday, October 20th to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the dedication of the Madelyn Helling County Library. Head Librarian MaryAnn Trygg says they will have lots of photographs on display depicting the progress of the new library.
“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.”
The 20th year celebration of the Madelyn Helling Library Thursday October 20th is from 12:30 to 1pm They will have a birthday cake and music provided by Patsy and Ben Hannebrink and If weather permits, Trygg says the Book Cart Drill Team will also perform you can see your favorite Library employees doing what she calls a silly dance with their book carts as they sing.
