Murphy Public Library Auction August 7 at Bob Grove Auctions

Posted on: June 5, 2010

On August 7, Bob Grove Auctions on Highway 64 East, two miles east of Murphy Medical Center will host Friends of Murphy Library’s Sixth Annual Art, Antiques and Uniques Auction.  The Silent Auction begins at 5 p.m. followed by the Live Auction.

Ask Judy and Bob Grove about their grandchildren and their eyes light up.  But if the conversation turns to finding abandoned baby birds, they know how to care for them too.  So when the Groves visited with Friends of Murphy Library at their May 18 potluck, Fundraising chair Nora King knew just what to give them.  She handed them a handmade birdhouse for their feathered friends and a “Wizard of Oz” gift set for their granddaughters, small tokens for their generosity to the library.

 

The Friends are hoping to raise $9,000 this year for the purchase of new nonfiction books for the children and teen section of the library.  An updated set of books on each of the states is first on the list.

 

Donations have been coming in but more are needed.  Crafts, antiques, and unique items such as gift certificates may be brought to the library anytime or to the Friends’ room at Valley River Merchants on Thursdays from 10:30 to 1 p.m.  Call 837-2417 for details.
