Tahoe-Truckee Lib Loop: Spring cleaning? Donate used books to the library
TAHOE-TRUCKEE — It’s spring time folks! I have sandals on my feet and I’m looking up through the library’s skylight to behold a gorgeous crystal blue sky. Ah, perfection!
I gather most of you feel the same way, and that most of you will turn in the snow shovels for brooms, rakes, trash bags and boxes as you head into spring-cleaning mode.
For that project there are two ways your library can help you. First, we have a collection of books that will help give you great ideas on how to organize your spaces, or perhaps learn all about the upcycling and recycling trends.
Second, we would love to have your new and/or gently used books. Whether we add them to our collections, or send them off to be sold, your libraries will benefit. Your book may be added to the library — helping the collection grow, or be turned into cold-hard-cash that help fund the libraries of North Lake Tahoe.
That said, please note that due to lack of storage, Kings Beach Library can only accept items during open hours and is very selective.
