Friends of Library to hold book sale

Provided to the Tribune

Jim Grant / Tahoe Daily Tribune Friends and patrons of the South Lake Tahoe Branch Library invite the community to participate in the annual used book sale. From left, front row, are Anna Maria DeLallo, 2, Teresa DeLallo, 9, Christina DeLallo, 4, and Isabella DeLallo, 6. In back are Amanda DeLallo, 12, Candace Kelly and Mark Dulyanai.

The South Lake Tahoe Friends of the Library will be having a used book sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 14 in the library conference room, 1000 Rufus Allen Blvd. The book sale will include many hard bound, paperbacks and some children’s books as well as some VHS tapes and other audio/visual materials. All funds from the sale of used books will benefit the South Lake Tahoe Branch Library.

Friends of the Library will be able to come to a “Pre-booksale Preview” from 6 to 8 p.m. Aug. 13. At the preview they will have an opportunity to pick from the “cream of the crop” before the general public. Entry to the preview for non-Friends of the Library is $5 or people may sign up to be a Friend of the Library at the preview. The membership fee is $10 for individuals and $25 for businesses.

In addition to used books, there will be a very limited number of Thomas Kinkade gift items for sale at extreme discounts. Also available will be various signed and numbered Kinkade prints priced at $215 including tax. The book sale will be a perfect time to shop for the Kinkade aficionado in your life. All proceeds from the sale of the gift items will benefit South Lake Tahoe Library children’s programs.

The library is still accepting donations of books and audio/visual materials for the summer book sale. Materials in good condition and with a later copyright date would be greatly appreciated.

Anyone interested in helping with the summer book sale or becoming a Friend of the Library is asked to call the South Lake Tahoe Branch Library at (530) 573-3185 or sign up at the library. Library hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The library is closed Sunday and Monday.
