Downtown Grass Valley Ornament - The Library (2006)
This unique collection of Christmas ornaments celebrates the spirit of Downtown Grass Valley through its architecture! A new ornament is released every year in the fall, just in time for the holidays. This fun tradition began in 2004 when Howard Levine and the Downtown Grass Valley Association found an ornament manufacturer that specialized in custom made ornaments. Though the manufacturers have changed throughout the years, the tradition has not.
All the ornaments are made of brass, and with the exception of the Ore Cart and the Stamp Mill, the ornaments are colored with enamel, and come in a presentation box.
The Grass Valley Library Royce Branch ornament was introduced in fall 2006. The library is a valuable resource for every community. "The Grass Valley Public Library (renamed the Grass Valley Library-Royce Branch) is a Carnegie library and on the National Register of Historic Places. Located in Grass Valley, California and a part of the Nevada County Library System."
