October 14, 2016 – In celebration of the four new library cards designed by the winners of the Library Card Design Contest, five businesses in Grass Valley and Nevada City are offering discounts to people who show their Nevada County Community Library cards between now and October 31, 2016.

In Grass Valley, the Artist Workshop is offering a 15% discount on purchases, Tribal Weaver is offering a 10% discount, and Fable Coffee is offering a 5% discount. In Nevada City, Three Forks Bakery & Brewing Co. is offering a 25% discount on soup and salad, while Mountain Pastimes is offering a 10% discount on purchases. Thank you to all of these businesses for their generosity towards library users.

First-time library cards are free and can be obtained at any Nevada County Community Library branch with identification and proof of address. Replacement cards are normally $2.00, but this fee is being waived until November 30, 2016 for card holders who would like to switch to one of the new library card designs.

For any questions, please contact Nevada County Librarian Laura Pappani at (530) 265-7078 or
