Wilczek says the facility is a culmination of years of work by countless people throughout the community. Funding comes from Measure A, passed by voters in 2016, which created a 15-year, quarter-cent sales tax that raises around four-million dollars each year for library services. Also, the Friends of Nevada County Libraries provided funds to assist in the construction, as well as furnishings.
