Silent auction to support upcoming library programs

by Stephen Dafoe

The Morinville Community Library will be pushing aside some books and other items next week for their spring Silent Auction fundraiser. The event takes place from opening Apr. 27 to May 3 at 4 p.m.

Library Manager Isabelle Cramp said the library has already received many donations from local businesses for the upcoming auction. They have once again been able to acquire a large amount of new Disney toys and bedding products, items that have been popular in the past. Ugg boots are a new item this auction.

Bidding is open through the entire week to bid, check and rebid if necessary. The highest bid by close of the auction is the winning bid. Cramp said items can be picked up immediately after the close of the auction.

“The reason we are doing the silent auction is to raise funds to support all our programs, and especially this year as we have our big Harry Potter Summer Reading Program coming up,” Cramp said. “We need to make sure we have adequate funding to run the program.”

More than raising funds for the library and its programming, Cramp said the silent auction adds some extra vibrancy to a popular community hub.

“This is something that’s brought in a lot of people on a regular basis,” she said. “We do the silent auction twice a year and we are now starting to see regulars. It brings in people that have never been in the library and gives them a chance to see what the library looks like.”
