The Siletz Valley Friends of the Library hold a Bake and Book sale to fund power-washing and repainting the library building. Volunteer Linda Hill said the building has developed some exterior mold after 5-1/2 years in our wet coastal climate, and needs some attention. She said the project will cost about $18 thousand. The library will host the sale Saturday, December 1 from 11:00 – 4:00. It coincides with a Christmas Craft sale at the Siletz Grange Hall. Both paperbacks and hardbacks will be available, with lots of both fiction and non-fiction. Some videos, DVDs, music and children’s books will also be for sale. Most paperbacks will be priced at .50 and hardbacks will run from $1.00 – $5.00. A variety of baked goods, including cookies, cakes and candy will be available, some already gift-wrapped.
