Renew libraries commitment

Five years ago, Nevada County overwhelmingly approved Measure A to fix the broken library system. The results have been spectacularly successful. More programs for young and old alike, more hours of operation, and filled stacks … all from our decision to fix it locally.

The sunset on “A” has expired, and it is time to renew our vow to continue the excellence. No new taxes asked; just a continuance of that same friendly little one-eighth cent. Our libraries have simply gotten too good to once again shut off the lights. Please do vote “yes” on Measure C. Save our libraries.
