“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” C.S. Lewis
When you have a long Christmas to-do list and with many good causes needing support this time of year, trying to cover all bases during holidays can be a challenge. Fortunately, Secondhand Prose’s Open House can solve both problems. The 13th Annual Open House will have books, holiday items and book-themed gift baskets (including a couple from yours truly).
Located in the Northwest Reno Library, bookstore is operated by volunteers from Friends of the Washoe County Library. In addition to gently used titles, the bookstore also carries books on CD and unique gifts for the booklover.
When I dropped off my baskets, the library’s backroom was filled with busy volunteers, baskets, and all sorts of goodies from toys to wine glasses. As with most holiday events preparation is key. One of the volunteers told me, they had slotted two full days to prepare all the baskets for the open house.
Holiday music will be provided by local musicians, so the open house is the perfect opportunity to pick up a few gifts while enjoying the spirit of the season. And you might find a couple choice reads for yourself…after all it’s for a good cause.
