And the total is...

The Friends' Goods & Services Auction on May 2nd raised nearly $3,200!! Thanks to all of those who donated items, and, of course, especially to those who attended the event and placed their bids! Very soon, the Friends will give a portion of these funds to the library, so be on the lookout for new books on CD, DVDs, museum passes, and other nifty things!

BIG Friends fundraising auction TOMORROW -- Friday, May 2nd!

In case you haven't heard, the Friends of the Andover Public Library are holding their 5th annual Goods & Services Auction tomorrow night -- Friday, May 2nd -- in the cafeteria at the Andover Elementary School, School Road, Andover. Preview starts at 6PM, and the auction will begin at 6:30PM.

Each year, the Friends hold this auction, and the proceeds are then donated to the library to be used for such things as purchasing museum passes, DVDs, books on CD, programming, and other fabulous things that benefit the library (and therefore, our patrons). Won't you consider joining the Friends and supporting this huge event? There are some terrific items up for bid this year, including passes to museums and attractions all over the Northeast, gift certificates to area restaurants, even a visit from Mr. & Mrs. Santa Claus to your family or office Christmas party! For a complete list of items to be auctioned, click here.

We hope you'll get out and support this effort!!!
