LIBRARY AID TELETHON” TO AIR FEBRUARY 20
Grass-roots effort to raise $100,000 to help County Library System
NCTV and Friends of the Nevada County Libraries are producing a 6-hour telethon to air on Saturday, February 20 between 3-9 pm. It can be seen on Comcast channel 11, Suddenlink channel 16 or simulcast live at www.nevadacountytv.org.
The goal of the 6-hour telethon is to raise $100,000 to help the Nevada County Public Library system with its current budget deficit in order to keep library services local and intact.
Programming will include readings from the locally published book Open to All: What the Library Means to Me, as well as interviews with locally known authors such as Gary Snyder, Steve Sanfield and Meg Palley. Local musical groups including “The Anderson Family” will appear. Premiums will be offered, challenges will be issued and segments highlighting various library programs will also be shown.
Volunteers are needed to put on this special event. If you’re interested, please contact Lew Sitzer at 478-1174 or Paul Minicucci at 478-6000 x249.
