There's always something new happening at the Library. As far back as I can remember, the Friends of the Library have never done a holiday-themed silent auction, but this year they decided to give it a try. You can see what they came up with in the display case (and just to the right of it) on our main floor. Eleven of our local benefactors dug into their bags of goodies and came up with some really cool stuff for this project. Thanks to our good friends at The Alcove, Athens Greek Restaurant, Black Walnut Holler, DQ Grill & Chill, Down Home Leather, Farley & Moore Antiques, Kudos, Susan's Boutique, Walmart and Roy Glaser and Timothy Zahn, we have 11 stuffed stockings and three hand-crafted items that will go to the highest bidders as of the end of the day on Wednesday, December 16. The stockings include a wide variety of choice items such as gift certificates, books, jewelry, music CDs, ornaments, matchbox cars and lots of other great stuff. The handcrafted items include a cutting board, lazy susan and a framed wooden angel. Come on in and take a look, then enter your bid!
