A resolution to name the Community Room at the Madelyn Helling Library in honor of the late Gene Albaugh was passed unanimously today by the Nevada County Board of Supervisors.
Mr. Albaugh was the County Administrative Officer during the period in which the library was constructed and played a crucial role in obtaining the funds needed and leadership to see the project through. Past County Librarian Madelyn Helling joined the Friends of Nevada County Libraries and others in making the request for the designation honoring Mr. Albaugh.

More recently, Gene Albaugh came out of retirement to serve as the Nevada City Manager and is fondly remembered by Nevada City Council member Robert Bergman who served as Nevada City Mayor under Albaugh.

A new sign naming the Madelyn Helling Library Community room for the late Gene Albaugh will be dedicated in the near future.
