Lawyer in the Library
Do you have a legal question that you could use some consultation on? Staff from the County's Public Defender's office will be available to help you, for free, with criminal legal advice for up to 10 minutes.
The Madelyn Helling Library is pleased to partner with the Public Defender's office to make the Lawyer in the Library program available. Once a month, lawyers will be available to consult on issues, with no legal ramifications for the participant. Any member of the public can request a time slot with the lawyer from 3-5 PM on the first Friday of every month. These private consultations will be held in the Prospector and Gold Rush rooms in the Technology Center of the Madelyn Helling Library. Next meeting date is April 4th.
While you do not have to reserve a time to meet with the Lawyers in the Library, if you would like more in-depth help you can call the Library at 265-7050 to reserve a time and to give a short background of your issue. This will enable your consultant to more thoroughly research your specific issue.

The Nevada County Reads and Writes Committee has selected the 2014 community book choice! The Fault in our Stars, by John Green, is the selected book for the coming year. Programs and events surrounding the book will occur in February-April 2014 and the schedule will be released in the near future. The Fault in our Stars is a Romeo-and-Juliet story, if the story were set in the 21st century and the main characters were teenage cancer survivors on a mission to meet a favorite author. Entirely engrossing and a captivating read for all ages, this novel will be sure to capture the attention of every reader in our community.
