Shout out for the August Silent Auction


Okay. This isn’t the item up for auction. Maybe when we get our NEW LIBRARY built and if we have a little (or a lot) of energy left over for more fundraising, we could afford to buy this sleek little number so that one of our Ridgefield tots can jet around in space-aged style. But, for now, let’s get ourselves back down to good old Mother Earth, shall we, People?

Every month, the Friends auction off something special and wonderful in our never-ending quest to raise money for the library.

You have to check in regularly at the library to see what’s up on the auction block, what the current bid is, and if you are in the lead.


A brand-new, deluxe Scrabble board game with a Scrabble Dictionary and a beautiful wooden cribbage set will be available throughout the month of August as the Silent Auction item. Bidding starts August 1 (see the item and make your bid at the library). Don’t miss out on these wonderful additions to your game collection and the chance to support a GREAT cause.  At the end of August, the highest bidder will be notified. Questions? Contact Tevis Laspa (360-600-0943) 

It’s an easy, fun, and exciting way to support YOUR library AND get wonderful things for you or someone on your gift-giving list.

Silent auctions are great! Look what I got. It's not just a ball. It's a just-my-size, perfectly yellow, I'm-not-sharing ball.

As always, thank you for supporting YOUR public library!
