Summer Reading Celebration
& Book Drive!
For the month of June we'll be hosting a book drive, which will conclude with a celebratory night of fun for children of all ages on June 27 from 6-7 PM! We're teaming up with Scholastic for this opportunity to donate gently used or new books to Nevada County's PARTNERS Family Resource Centers.
There are three Family Resource Center locations serving Nevada County residents. For a list of their services click here. All contributions made to our book drive will go directly to the Family Resource Center's lending libraries in Grass Valley, Penn Valley, and the San Juan Ridge. You may donate at any time in June but we're holding a special night on the 27th (during Thursday Night Market!) from 6-7 PM where we'll have crafts, a selfie photo station, and more. As a bonus, if you decide to make a donation that night you're welcome to take home a goodie bag on us!

The Summer fun doesn't stop there- come to our event on June 27 for a sneak peek at our July Magical Reading program! More details to come.
The Great Race is coming! Monday, June 24 11:45 AM
Each year there is a different route, and this year Grass Valley is a stop along The Great Race! Come see classic cars as the racers stop and have lunch before racing to the next town. On Monday, June 24, downtown Grass Valley will travel back in time as over 120 vintage road racers will rumble down East Main then onto Mill Street in the only stop for the Great Race in the Sacramento area.
To celebrate this historic race, Nevada County Habitat for Humanity and Grass Valley Downtown Association have partnered to hold a downtown rally where people can get an up-close experience of these vintage road machines. The event begins at 11am and ends at 4pm. Portions of Main and Mill Street will be closed to create a lunchtime pit stop for racers. We'll see you there!
