  During its fifth annual Santa Book Signing held Friday, Dec. 14, Books & Beyond raised $250 for the Plumas County Sheriff’s Employees Association’s annual toy drive.

  Two beautifully crafted toys were up for grabs to help raise the money: Rocket the Rocking Horse and the bookstore’s longtime resident, the Junie B. Jones doll.

  Rocket the Rocking Horse was handcrafted and donated by an anonymous patron of the artists of the Backroom Gallery. Rather then donate Rocket to only one fortunate child, the gallery decided to spread the wealth by selling tickets for the horse, the proceeds of which would go to providing toys for many needy children.
