CASPAR – books on ecology, birds, geology, education, nature conservation, travel, astronomy, science and more will be available on Sunday, November 8th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the new dormitory next to Highway 1 in Caspar on Jug Handle Creek Farm & sold. Nature center.
The conversion of the nature library in the farmhouse into a handicapped-accessible bedroom brought new bookshelves, but reduced the shelf space for books. Volunteer librarians have put the best of the latest books on display there, but hundreds of older titles are now surplus and on sale. A children’s book about the life of a deer might look a little worn, but the knowledge in these books hasn’t changed and the illustrations are still great.
The holidays are just around the corner. Think of these recycled books as great inexpensive gifts. How many other readers had this book in your hands before it was yours? You don’t have to leave the coast to get great deals!
As a buyer, you are helping a local nonprofit educational institution that was shut down during the pandemic. Jug Handle cannot accommodate a bus full of children on an excursion during the coronavirus times, but they can host a book sale with masked and socially distant people.
Katy Tahja is also the author of six books on local history. She will sell and sign these and give a portion of her profits back to the Jug Handle Creek Farm & Nature Center. Take a look at her latest book “A Eclectic History of Mendocino County” and discover the Jug Handle Nature Center and the path of the ecological staircase.
Book prices are dirt cheap. It’s a great opportunity to take a look at the latest facilities available for meetings, gatherings, and accommodations when the pandemic restrictions end. For more information on the event, call (707) 937-5854.
