Show support for local libraries and get a chance to win a beautiful giclee print for the home or office by purchasing raffle tickets now on sale at  the six branches of the El Dorado County Library.

“Thanks to the generosity of former El Dorado County Supervisor Jack Sweeney, the Friends of the El Dorado County Library is raffling off this limited-edition work by well-known local artist Thaleia Georgiades,” said Larry Calderwood, who as former president of Friends of the Library was instrumental in obtaining the print.

“The Late Show,” framed in mahogany and matted with suede, is No. 4 of a very limited run of 25. It originally hung in Supervisor Sweeney’s office and has been valued at approximately $1,440.

Raffle tickets are $5 each (or three for $10 or eight for $20) and may be purchased now through Aug. 25 at the front desk of each of the county’s libraries. A drawing will be held the first week of September. The print may be viewed in person at the El Dorado Hills Library (through July 12); South Lake Tahoe Library (July 16 through Aug. 14) and the Placerville Main Library (Aug. 15-25).
