It’s another busying weekend in St. Maries! Book sales for the library, an auction and spaghetti for the Boller family and the Dutch oven dinner for

If you’re in need of a good winter read chances are you’ll find it at the seventh annual Friends of the Library book sale. 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3.

This year, children who attend with an adult can take home five free children’s book as well as a free video. Hardcover books will be sold for $1 and paperbacks are 25 cents.

The Friends of the Library collects books year round from the community in preparation for their annual sale and uses the money to help support the library.

The nonprofit group averages between 20 and 30 members. Anyone who wants to get involved can visit the library for more information.

Another great event this weekend is the spaghetti dinner and benefit for longtime St. Maries resident Kenny Boller and his family. Mr. Boller was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in April. He’s received chemotherapy treatments and will undergo a stem-cell transplant soon.

The Spaghetti-O’s, a group of volunteers who frequently pull together when there is a need, will serve the dinner. Kenny’s friends, family and neighbors have pulled together a live auction, silent auction and dessert auction to help pay for the families expenses.

And that’s not all.

Saturday is Hope’s Haven’s third annual Dutch Oven Dinner.

Dinner is served from 5 to 7 p.m. and includes a large menu of approximately 20 entrees and 10 desserts. Volunteers from St. Joe Outfitters will return this year to help cook and serve the food Dutch ovens.

Hope’s Haven is the animal shelter in Benewah County. This year organizers hope to raise money to help refurbish dog kennels. The kennels were first installed in 2001.

For additional information call the shelter at 245-7387.
