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

In addition, Friends of the Library will hold a drawing for a locally-crafted cedar chest, donated by local artisan Kurt Krause. The chest, which was handmade in the older tradition without the use of nails, is estimated at a monetary value of $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 currently 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 booksale. These are fully framed prints ready to mount and may be taken home for the bargain price of $125 per print. We have a limited amount so come early to the booksale to claim yours. All proceeds from the sale of the Thomas Kinkade prints will benefit the free children’s programs at the library.

The Friends of the Library are still seeking donations for the booksale. 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. All materials have to be handled by our staff for processing, so if you wouldn’t give it to your grandma, don’t give it to us. All good condition donations are fully tax deductible.
