 The Friends are holding a Silent Auction in the library’s meeting room and need donations. Crafts, an antique or a gift certificate. Think of what you’ve liked at previous auctions and donate the same for this one.

Here are some recent donations:

Mike Lalone, John C. Campbell Folk School potter, donated one of his signature vases for the auction.


A beautiful edition of Huckleberry Finn in perfect condition. Illustrations are by noted artist Thomas Hart Benton.


This could be the start of a wine party!


Check out this adorable baby quilt!

The Murphy Library has the best patrons in the country.  These are just a few of the wonderful items donated for the August 8 auction.  Squint your eyes just like Robbie Burns would and you can see a little book of his poems.  Or check out Mike Lalone’s light blue-green vase.
