North San Juan Library Kiosk Opens Today

Residents up on the ridge will no longer have to drive into town to check out a library book from Nevada County. The county has just installed a new lending kiosk in North San Juan that becomes operational today….

County Librarian Laura Pappani says it holds a lot more than a candy machine–it can store several hundred books. Pappani says it’s also easy to use…

She says there will be a combination of adult and children’s titles, and mostly fiction. Like normal library lending, you are asked to keep the book for no longer than three weeks. The kiosk is located at Oak Tree Community Park, and there will be an open house and ribbon cutting ceremony this afternoon at 4pm. The open house not only celebrates the kiosk, but also the one year anniversary of the volunteer-run San Juan Ridge Community Library.

I live in Los Angeles County. On this Memorial Day weekend, I drove through and stayed three hours walking the streets in North San Juan. I noticed a wall mural on a single story brick building on Rte 49. There is "Welcome to North San Juan" writing near the top left corner of the mural. I am interested in knowing the story and anything about this mural, I guess that has something to do with the 1850s Gold Rush!?
I appreciate that anyone could send me this piece of education info to my email address.
