Call for donations for Silent Auction

The library needs you!

The library is launching an exciting fundraiser and once again the library needs your help…want to take part? Read on! Silent auctions are great “fun” raisers and fundraisers and this is how you can help.

We are looking for donations of items and services that we will open up to bidding during the month of November. Highest bidder wins of course, and the proceeds come into the library’s 2021 budget…helping the library raise precious funds for the many programs and wonderful collection of books.

The library would like to ask you to donate gifts of value (minimum 30 euros) and/or think about asking a friend or local business about donating something. If you would like to present an official letter of request to a business, feel free to print out this letter in English by clicking here and in French by clicking here.

Donations can be items and/or services. Short of ideas? Look at this list for inspiration.* Everything should be brought to the library by October 28th (bidding starts the following week). Since this is a fundraiser we are asking for items of minimum value 30 euros. Auction items will be displayed in the library and featured on our website for bidding starting November 2nd and will remain open until 6pm on November 25th.
