Future of S. Tahoe bookstore to be discussed

Lake Tahoe Books and Art was conceived as a pop-up store designed to service our community for the winter holiday season. It is not yet altogether clear how long it will be able to renew its month-to-month lease options.

With the goal of exploring what it would take to develop a more permanent community bookstore on the South Shore, there will a meeting Feb. 22 from 5-6:30pm to gather input about such an endeavor. It will be at the store in the Village Center, next to Sports Ltd. in South Lake Tahoe.

    I’m with you, fromform. We HAVE a bookstore. Bonafide. It actually serves the locals! We’ve had other bookstores in town that have all gone bye-bye. There’s no money in them anymore. Even the Bigs are failing thanks to Amazon and Kindle, and other factors. If they want to put a “community” store in at the old Crescent V, who would it actually service? Not locals. And if it were feasible to begin with, it could be done without public input. Or do the brains behind it want US to finance it for them?

    I’ve heard of Bonafide Books but don’t know where it is. Can one of you knowledgeable people tell me the location? Thanks so much! Peace.

    Bona Fide Books is in Meyers, at 1069 Magua #4, behind the Getaway Cafe. We are a small press, but carry some books by local and regional writers, art by local artists, and have a book exchange. We also host art receptions and readings. We will be closed Feb. 28-March 4, but are generally open M-F, 9-5.

    To find out about our readings and events, go to http://www.bonafidebooks.com or find us on Facebook.

    Thanks for your support!

    Let’s face it guys, most businesses need local AND tourist patronage to be truly successful. Stateline is probably a good choice, good luck though, doesn’t seem like much money in that kind of business-
