Oktoberfest is cancelled. That’s a bummer. If 2020 permits, though, the Friends of the Library are preparing plans to have an outdoor, socially-distanced book sale spread out over the Library’s parking lot and lawns on October 3. Whether or not we end up being able to pull this off, the Friends are definitely hosting an online auction running from October 3 through 14!
This benefit auction will be entirely online and the proceeds will go to benefit the Library’s building fund campaign. Right now, the Friends are seeking donations of great items, services, etc. to be presented in the online catalog. If you have a special service, talent, attic treasure, artsy item, antique, time-share, a horde of hand sanitizer, or anything else you think would be a desirable auction item, contact Donna Kmetz at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submissions is September 11.
Just to tease some items that you’ll be able to bid on, we’ve got vintage quilts, farm baskets, scratch tickets, gift cards, a leg of lamb, yoga classes, golf rounds, a ride to school in a police cruiser, and a week in St. Marten!
