  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

Do you have gently used books at home that you could donate to support the activities of Woodinville Library? Friends of the Woodinville Library sells these used books in the lobby of the library, and the proceeds provide extra funding for programs that serve area children and families. Library patrons can purchase great reads in fiction and nonfiction for $1 or less, including current bestsellers, classic fiction and nonfiction of every type. Children’s books, at 50 cents and less, are always in great demand and fly off the shelves.

In 2013 FWL’s used book revenues paid for the library anniversary celebration, supplies for the children’s Story Times at the library, plus many of the summer programs for children and their families, concerts, college planning workshops, teen writers’ workshops and adult programs.

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

Catch the sizzling sounds of summer on a hot August night at the Willis Tucker Park Amphitheater. The gates open at 4:30 p.m. on August 23 and the show starts at 6 p.m. And what a show! Rock & Roll Hall-of-Famer Michael Shrieve, and his all-star band Spellbinder, headlines. Shrieve is the original drummer for Santana, and his group’s current style reflects that illustrious past, featuring spicy latin-inspired jazz rhythms and rock riffs. Local favorite WingsNThings will kick things off, rollicking with the music of Paul McCartney, including classic hits from The Beatles and Wings.

In addition to the music, there will be specialty food and craft vendors and a beer and wine garden. Ten percent of tickets sales are donated to the Snohomish County Park Scholarship Fund, and 100 percent of proceeds from the beer and wine garden will benefit the local chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
