Donating books; ‘Shrew’ costume designer has Glen Ellen roots

A pickup full of books

My grateful thanks go out this week to a trio of Sonoma helpers. I had more than 20 boxes of beautiful books I wanted to donate to this week’s library book sale and no pickup truck to transport them. I’d just about talked my Sweetie into schlepping the books in multiple trips in his tiny Toyota to our Sonoma Valley Regional Library when I remembered the brief Index-Tribune story recently offering free pick up for folks donating books to our local library.

After a quick call to the number given, which turned out to be the Schake’s home in Sonoma, they were on their way to pick up my score of heavy boxes. Wayne, the major book carrier, arrived with his Sweetie, Cecelia, and grandson, Barrett. Along with my Sweetie, the gentlemen had the truck loaded and on the way to the library in no time, while Cecelia and I gabbed. Turns out handsome grandson Barrett is an Air Force pilot, just like his Dad and Grandpa. Yep, Cecelia’s a proud grandma, and rightly so.

The one place I promise not to see you, my dear readers, is tomorrow at the Sonoma Valley Regional Library book sale. Right now, my shelves feel just lovely with a bit of open space.
