Calling all Back Mountain residents, auction attendees, collectors and treasure hunters!
If you’ve ever attended a Back Mountain Memorial Library Annual Auction and found one of your most “cherished” items over the “block” or amidst the auction tents, the library wants to hear from you. Help spread the word about all of the interesting and “just-gotta-have-it” items that are always the best part of auction fun,
Visit the library before June 17 and jot down your favorite “find,” most cherished or unusual item that you purchased during any of the 66 past auctions and deposit your slip in the jar on the library’s front desk. You may add the reason you purchased it, why you love it or what it means to you. Slips may include your name or if you don’t want to “admit” your purchase to anyone, you may remain anonymous.
A listing of these “treasures” will appear in the next library news article. So start thinking and searching throughout your homes so you, too, can take pride in what the auction means to all of us in the Back Mountain.
And, while you’re looking for this item, don’t forget it’s a great time to pack up a few (not-so-favorite) items that you no longer need and donate them to the auction. Donations of items are also currently being accepted during normal library hours. Household items, Nearly Olde vintage collectibles and dishes, slightly used books and antiques are needed and, of course, new goods items and gift certificates to area businesses are always popular.
Parents are reminded that registration for children’s Summer Story hours will begin on Tuesday, June 11. You may call the library at 675-1182 beginning at 9:30 a.m. on that day to register your child.
Registration for the children’s Summer Reading Program will begin on Wednesday, June 12. This year’s theme is “Dig into Reading” and promises many fun activities. Stop by the library and pick up a flyer for more information.
