Nevada County reads succeeds

Nevada County Reads, a collaboration between the Nevada County Superintendent of Schools Office, the Nevada County library and interested community members, continues to promote community-wide reading.

We extend a huge “thank you” to author Jordan Fisher Smith; Judy Hess, president and CEO of Citizens Bank; Ranger Mike Lynch; and Janet Cohen of SYRCL for helping to make our 2008 community read, “Nature Noir: a Park Ranger’s Patrol in the Sierra,” an unqualified success.

We were honored to receive funding from Citizens Bank to promote all events with signs displayed prominently on Gold Country Stage buses, bookmarks and wonderful posters designed by David McKay.

Jordan’s presence at every event, including high school visits and our ranger-led walk at the proposed Auburn Dam site, wrapped up a series of activities that reached more than 248 attendees, as well as those who purchased books or checked them out from our libraries. We are thankful to our local book stores – Harmony Books, The Book Seller and Words on Paper – and to Friends of the Nevada County Libraries for providing books for sale and 20 copies to the libraries, and to KNCO, KVMR and The Union newspaper for publicizing our programs.

We look forward to Jordan’s next great read.

Stan Miller, Associate Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction; Mary Ann Trygg, County Librarian; and the entire Nevada County Reads planning team
