The stockings will be filled with a variety of holiday goodies and delivered by volunteer drivers Ed Laine, back left, and Doug Madden.

On Dec. 8, volunteers of all ages worked at the South Lake Tahoe Branch Library to bring Christmas cheer to the patrons of the library’s Books on Wheels program. The volunteers made wreaths, decorated and filled stockings, and wrapped plates of cookies for each of the people served by the Books on Wheels program.

Then, the gifts were delivered to the homes of the program’s patrons by Doug Madden, Marilyn McFarland and Ed Laine. Throughout the year, these three volunteers have made it possible for the Books on Wheels members to enjoy the books, audiobooks and movies that the library offers.

Books on Wheels is a delivery system to get materials such as books, magazines, audiotapes and DVDs into the hands of home-confined citizens. These are individuals whose age, handicap or other limitations prevent them from visiting the library either permanently or temporarily. The South Lake Tahoe Branch Library supplies the materials, and a member of the Friends of the Library delivers and picks up the items.

For more information about having books delivered to your home through the Books on Wheels program, call the library at (530) 573-3185.
