Ender’s Game event held at library today

The Nevada County Library decided to expand its Ender’s Game event to a full-scale Sci-Fi Extravaganza, happening today. Young adults, ages 12-18, can celebrate all things sci-fi at the Madelyn Helling Library from 5:30-7 p.m. Saturday.

Staff will lock the doors at 5:30 p.m., and audience members can watch a sci-fi movie and design T-shirts featuring their favorite science fiction series. There will be snacks, and participants can win tickets to the “Ender’s Game” movie, courtesy of Sierra Theaters. The lobby will be open at 5 p.m. for participants. The event is free. ​

The Madelyn Helling Library hosts two movie events each month: Family Movie Afternoons and the Book VS Movie Club.

Family Movie Afternoons are on the first Monday of every month. Starting at 4 p.m., the library will feature a family friendly movie playing in the Gene Albaugh Community Room. This event is free and available on a first-come, first-seated basis.

The next showing is Monday at 4 p.m. Enjoy free candy and popcorn as you watch a fun film. For questions, contact Children’s Room staff at 265-1538 or check online at http://www.mynevadacounty.com/nc/library.

The Book VS Movie Club is on the first Tuesday of every month. Starting at 4 p.m., the library features a movie based on a book. Attendees are invited to read the book ahead of time, as the library has copies available in the month leading up to the movie.

This event is free of charge and available on a first-come, first-seated basis. The next showing is Tuesday. For questions regarding the program or chosen book/movie, contact the main library at 265-7050 or check online at http://www.mynevadacounty.com/nc/library.
