Silent Auction and Cooking Supplies Sale August 19 – 20

Posted on: July 8, 2011

“Mike does such good work,” Murphy Librarian Jeff Murphy said as he looked at the vase John Campbell Folk School potter Mike Lalone recently donated to the library.  Mike is one of many of our local artists and craftspeople who help the library in its fundraising efforts.

This year Friends of Murphy Library are holding a Silent Auction at the library on August 19 and 20.  It follows the “Art, Antiques, and Uniques” theme that has propelled library auctions in years past.  Craftspeople, collectors, and local businesses are encouraged to bring in a special object or gift certificate.  Donations are urgently needed and gratefully accepted.

Jeff Murphy holds Mike Lalone's vase and a beautiful edition of Huckleberry Finn that will be part of the Friends' Silent Auction August 19 and 20.

But that’s not all.  The Friends are combining a Cooking Supplies Sale with the Silent Auction.  It’s like a yard sale for the kitchen.   Everyone (including restaurants) is encouraged to clean out their cupboards and bring kitchenware to the library.  From pots and pans to cookbooks and aprons — everything that brings a meal to the table is welcome for the sale. 

See the empty bookshelves behind Jeff?  We want to fill them with new books.  Your help with our fundraisers can do this.  Call 837-2417.  Bring your items by the library any time during library hours.  And — thank you!
