VIDEO: Officials past and present celebrate Truckee Library’s 40th b-day

TRUCKEE, Calif. — On Tuesday, more than 30 people converged outside the Truckee Library to celebrate the library's 40th birthday.

The celebration included presentations by those instrumental in the Truckee Library's four-decade existence, including Madelyn Helling, Nevada County librarian from 1974-1991 and one of the people who helped create the Truckee Library.

In addition, proclamations of support were given by Nevada County Supervisor (District 5) Richard Anderson and Truckee Vice Mayor Morgan Goodwin.

In the midst of the Truckee Library keeping its doors opens for 40 years, the Friends of the Truckee Library, a nonprofit grassroots organization, has been blueprinting plans to bring Truckee a bigger, better library.

The current 40-year-old library, which sits on Levon Avenue, is a mere 4,600 square feet, a congested space for a town population of 16,000 and growing.

Notably, on Jan. 26, 2016, the Friends of the Truckee Library received a letter of support from Nevada County Board of Supervisors.
