Announcing the Friends of Mississippi Mills Public Library online auction, June 5 – 23, 2023
The Friends are organizing our third annual online auction from June 5-23. Our theme this year is “Fun, Food, and Favorites”. Proceeds from our auction will fund the many programs offered by the library. We also support special acquisitions for the library, such as the acquisition of large print books.
For the auction to be successful the Friends are asking members of our community for their support by offering a service, gift certificate, or an experience. To date, we have contacted local businesses and organizations who have been generous in their donations. We are now looking for individuals who may have something to donate that would fit into our theme. As examples, popular auction entries last year included: Yoga classes, an antique appraisal, a bread making workshop, a dump run, a mosaic workshop, electrical work, a special occasion cake, line dancing lessons, and a crockpot of baked beans and cornbread. If you are able to make a donation, or need more information, please contact auction committee member Pam Harris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last year, with the help of the community we raised just over $4500. Let’s see if we can outdo that this year to support the library’s additional programming. Thanks for your help and don’t forget to bid in June!
