Fourth Friends Annual Fall Auction Open to Donations

The Friends of the Library are now accepting donations for our 4th annual online auction! We’re looking for local goods and services to populate this year’s catalog. Donations can include (but are not limited to) services, talents, household items, artsy items, attic treasures, historic memorabilia, rustic crafts, etc. If you have anything you would like to donate, please email pictures and descriptions of your donation to:

Helpful descriptions include what the item is, how big it is, how old it is, who made it, any special stories behind it, and approximate value. Our deadline for accepting donations is September 14th at 8pm, but sooner is better!

The auction itself will begin at noon on October 9 and bidding will wrap up at 8pm on October 23. It will be entirely online, and all proceeds will go to the Library’s capital campaign to renovate the building and make it accessible.
