The monthly auction sponsored by the Friends of the Library ends tomorrow. This colorful basket of items was chosen to honor the Multicultural Festival during First Saturday. There is a bid sheet in the library – stop by and enter a bid if you’re interested.

The Friends have decided to start bidding on the Tuesday after First Saturday, and close the bidding on the First Saturday of the next month. With that in mind, September’s auction items will have a bird theme in honor of Bird Fest.

The first contains a bird seed feeder, a bevy of song birds, a bird-themed wind chime, embroidered fabric bird cards by Lorna Earl, bird-themed note cards by science illustrator Barbara AW Wright, HumZinger humming bird feeder, ‘Birds’ book, and bird themed cards from the Audubon Society.

This basket contains a squirrel-proof seed feeder filled with black oil sunflower seeds, a metal suet feeder and block of suet, the National Audubon Field Guide to birds, two embroidered fabric note cards by Lorna Earl, framed eagle watercolor print by science illustrator Barbara AW Wright, a stylized wood painted duck, eight bird-themed note cards by Barbara AW Wright, and three small packets of wildflower seeds.

The baskets and bid sheets will be in the library on Tuesday.
