Friends of the South Lake Tahoe Public Library gave out 320 books to people on the beaches, at bus stops, the food bank truck, rec center, senior center, Juvenile Treatment Center and Tahoe Senior Plaza among other places in town during World Book Night on Wednesday. All the givers enjoyed reaching out to others in the community by sharing a special book.

Each year on April 23, Shakespeare’s birthday, tens of thousands of people go out into their communities and give half a million free World Book Night paperbacks to light and non-readers.
