FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY: Discount coupon books benefit library
As we approach the holiday season, most of us turn our thoughts to sending gifts to far-flung family members, acknowledging friends and co-workers and extending ourselves to offer something to those less fortunate than ourselves.
The Entertainment 2001 Book, now on sale at the Truckee Library and Boice Countryside Realtors, is one solution to the dilemma that faces all of us at this time of year.
This is the fourth year that the Friends of the Library have sold these books of substantial discount coupons. Of the total price for the book – just $20 – six dollars directly benefits the Friends and the work they do on behalf of the Truckee Library.
Wong’s Chinese Garden, El Toro Bravo, and Cafe Meridian are just a sampling of the local dining establishments which accept discount coupons worth up to $17 off on meals. In the Reno/Sparks area, over 50 restaurants, from elegant dining establishments to informal family-style eateries, accept coupons from the Entertainment Book, which also has coupons for Sacramento, Carson City and South Lake Tahoe. If you prefer to eat on the run, the book has coupons for everything from McDonald’s to Dairy Queen and Subway. In addition, the book has hundreds of coupons for lodging throughout the United States, as well as savings opportunities on rental cars and cruise ships.
If you enjoy an occasional day off or night out, there are coupons for every type of local entertainment, from the Nevada Opera and the Reno Philharmonic to “Catch A Rising Star” at the Silver Legacy Casino and theater tickets at Bruka, Actory, Reno Little Theater and UNR Performing Arts Series. Discounts to area museums include coupons for the Children’s Museum and the Nevada State Museum in Carson City, the Wilbur D. May Museum, Fleischmann Planetarium and Nevada Historical Society Museum in Reno.
There are also a wealth of discount coupons for sports establishments such as local golf courses, ski resorts, bike shops, indoor climbing gyms and hang-gliding lessons, as well as deals on sports equipment rental.
Throughout the year you can save money on drapery and carpet cleaning, flowers, video rentals, dry cleaning, oil changes and more.
If you haven’t yet decided on the perfect gift for friends and family, check out the Entertainment Books.
You’ll be giving something that goes a long way and supporting your public library at the same time.
