Many thanks to all the wonderful people who donated items to the Friends of Murphy Library’s annual Silent Auction, the Cooking Supplies Sale, the Cookbook Sale, and the Book Sale!
Thanks also to the hard-working volunteers, the library staff, and the finger food makers.
Most of all, our deep gratitude goes to all of you who came to the auction and found one, two or many treasures. We made over $2,900 from the Silent Auction and over $550 from the Cooking Supplies, Cookbook and Book Sale. Funds will be used to enhance the Cherokee Cultural and Research Center that is being established in the Genealogy Room for all to enjoy.

If you are an artist, craftsperson, book lover, collector, or just looking for a good time, don’t miss Friends of Murphy Library’s popular Crafts and Craft Supplies and Books in the Breezeway Sales on Thursday and Friday, August 2 and 3, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the library.
The Crafts and Craft Supplies Sale raises money for prizes in the Cherokee County Schools annual Spelling Bee. The Bee is co-sponsored by The Cherokee Scout’s Newspaper in Education and Friends of Murphy Library.
Crafters and artists sell their excess supplies, finished crafts and make a donation to the Bee fund. They love to talk about their work. Sammie Simpson, Jo-Ann Allen, Sharon Francis, Kathy Hoyt and Leslie Beaster will have tables full of quilts, quilting fabrics, yarn, scrapbook items, sewing items and lots more. The Friends sell donated items including a whittling set, tie-dye paints with t-shirts, fabrics, and frames. Moreover, Friends members like Louise MacDonald are there to lend advice to novice crafters.
Are your bookshelves empty? The Murphy Library’s Books in the Breezeway shelves have been reorganized making it easy to find your favorite authors, fiction and nonfiction, and lots of books on tape. And when you buy books on tape, they leave your hands free for, what else, your favorite craft. Call 837-2417 for details.

We have two big events coming up in August. Our Crafts, Supplies and Book Sale takes place on August 2 and 3 from 9 to 2.
Our Annual Silent Auction, Cooking Supplies and Book Sale will be held August 17 and 18. I recently photographed some of the wonderful items donated for the Silent Auction. It runs from 10 to 1 both days. Bidding stops at 1 p.m. and then you see what you’ve won!
Are you a Civil War buff? There is a beautiful plate and a dvd you might bid on. Or are you more interested in having a spot of tea? Nora King donated a Starbucks Tea Set and Wanda Leatherwood from Nantahala Regional Library brought in a lovely Coach purse. Local shop Blue Moon Elise has donated a pretty package of lotions for you or someone you love.

and for our Silent Auction, Cooking Supplies, Books, and did we mention special shelves of cook books for those of us who love to collect them? Also, Sharon Hibberts of Pampered Chefs and Sande Kimbell of Willow House will take orders from their current catalogs. Ten percent of all sales they make will be given to Friends of Murphy Library.
