Beginning Monday November 8th, The Nevada County Community Library is extending its open hours at 3 locations.  On this date, the Truckee, Madelyn Helling, and Grass Valley Libraries will be open from 10am-6pm Monday through Friday.  Patrons will be able to check out books and movies, enjoy library events, and use curbside pickup during these hours. 

“We are so glad to be able to offer an extra open hour to our patrons,” says Nick Wilczek, County Librarian. “We know there are people who work during the week that have had trouble visiting the library with our reduced hours, so we are happy to be able to make this change.”

With later hours the library will be able to provide even more in person events for patrons. One new program starting in November is The Nerd Squad (named by the Teen Leadership Committee) which will take place on Fridays from 3-6pm at the Grass Valley Library. During the program the library’s lower level will be turned into a teen space for youth ages 12-18 and feature activities including, Dungeons and Dragons, Magic the Gathering, and an Otaku Anime Club. 

Teens and Tweens ages 10-17 can also enjoy the weekly Art Attack Art Club at the Madelyn Helling Library from 4-5:30pm on Tuesdays. Participants will learn various art techniques like drawing, painting, and collage and get a chance to create art as a group. 

Please note that masks continue to be required for all indoor services including library programs. For more information on these programs or other library services visit our website at or call your local library branch.
