NEVADA CITY– During the month of November, the Madelyn Helling Branch of the Nevada County Library (also in Nevada City) will feature an exhibit called “Humanitarians on the Home Front,” that pays tribute to Grass Valley’s Frances Jones and her noteworthy humanitarian wartime work. Madelyn Helling Branch Library 980 Helling Way, Nevada City, CA 95959 Monday: 10 am – 7 pm Tuesday: 10 am – 6 pm Wednesday: 10 am – 6 pm Thursday: 10 am – 7 pm Friday: 10 am – 6 pm Saturday: 10 am – 5 pm Sunday: Closed This program is part of a project entitled Over Here: Nevada County’s Experience of WWI which is supported by California Humanities through an Humanities for All Quick Grant. Although the battlefields of World War I were far from rural Nevada County, its residents were deeply engaged in the war’s issues and the challenges it presented. The war was the most consequential event of the 20th century, yet it has almost faded from modern memory. Over Here: Nevada County’s Experience of World War I is a multifaceted program designed to reconnect our community to this transformational event in our nation’s history. Our program is scheduled to coincide with the worldwide commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Armistice between Germany and the Allies that brought and end to the fighting of the Western Front on November 11, 1918.
