April 10, 2017 – National Library Week is April 9th through 15th! To celebrate, the Nevada County Community Library is hosting Library BINGO all week. Pick up your Library BINGO card at your local branch, complete it, and bring it back to receive a pack of California Wildflower Seeds and be entered into a drawing to win a pair of Sierra Cinema movie tickets, a gardening gift basket, or an iPod shuffle.

The Library is also hosting a BookFace photo contest! Take your photo with a book cover as your face (see picture above) and tag your photo with #nevadacountylibrary on Instagram or post it on the Nevada County Library Facebook page. Participate to be entered into a random drawing to win a pair of Sierra Cinema movie passes or a gift bundle from the Bookseller in Grass Valley. Two winners will be announced on April 25th.
