Books, more at library sale

Provided to the Tribune

South Lake Tahoe Branch Library, 1000 Rufus Allen Blvd., will conduct a book sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Nov. 4 to support the Friends of the Library free children’s programs. Many hardcover and paperback books will be available at deep discounts. DVDs, VHS and books on tape will also be available. The fall book sale is a great way to stock up on your winter reading materials while helping support your local library.

In addition, the Friends of the Library will hold a drawing for a locally crafted cedar chest. The cedar chest, which has been donated by local artisan Kurt Krause, is handmade in the older tradition, without the use of nails. Estimated monetary value of the chest is $800 to $1,000. A handmade shawl from Dee Peard and a certificate for an ice cream cake from Cold Stone Creamery will also be given away with the chest.

Tickets are $1 for one, $5 for six, $10 for 14 or $20 for 30. Tickets are available at the library. All proceeds from the drawing will directly benefit the South Lake Tahoe Friends of the Library.

There will also be limited number of Thomas Kinkade prints available for sale at the book sale. These are fully-framed prints ready to mount. The prints may be taken home for the bargain price of $125 per print. We have a limited number, so come early to the book sale to claim yours. All proceeds from the sale of the Thomas Kinkade prints will benefit the Free Children’s Programs held at the Library.

The Friends of the Library are still seeking donations for the book sale. Please donate only good quality materials of recent origin. Do not donate moldy, old, water damaged, or other undesirable materials. Textbooks, old encyclopedias, and catalogs are examples of items that are undesirable. Materials are handled by our staff, so if you wouldn’t give it to your grandma, don’t give it to us. All good condition donations are fully tax deductible.

Friends of the Library will need help with both setup and closing of the sale. If interested, contact Mark at (530) 573-3185.
