Friends’ vice president, Bob MacLean and his wife Gail have made a special donation to Friends of Murphy Library’s Silent Auction, August 9, – this Friday! – from 10 a.m. til 2p.m. — a trail bike in perfect condition!! 

Read what Bob has to say:

“The bike is a Mongoose sycamore trail bike with 21 gears, air pump, water bottle, helmet, tools and toolbag with riding gloves.  It has had very little use since bought several years ago and is in excellent condition. Based on today’s market I would estimate its value at least at $300.”
