Nevada City Library turns 100

The Doris Foley Library for Historical Research in Nevada City will celebrate its 100th year on Thursday with a special program and open house.

When the library first opened its doors a century ago, the Carnegie Foundation-funded building was known as the Nevada City Library. Today, the building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is among the few Carnegie libraries still used for its original purpose.

The celebration begins with an open house from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 211 North Pine St. Visitors can tour the building and its collections, including as Gold Rush-era newspapers and cemetery records.

At 5 p.m., a special presentation will feature music and speakers, including Nevada County librarian Mary Ann Trygg.

For more information, contact the library at 265-4606.
