Silent Auction

Every month, the Friends hold a Silent Auction.  Interesting, unusual, and nearly-new books are continuously offered.  Bidders determine the prices.  

See the Silent Auction glass display case near the reference desk for the newest entries and to make a bid. 

The Silent Auction focuses on singularly attractive or hard to find books – all collected from donations.  Each Silent Auction grouping is displayed in the case for 4-5 weeks along with a brief description, internet pricing of similar items, and bidding information.  

To Bidenter your bid amount on the appropriate index card in red binder hanging next to Silent Auction display case in YV Library.  Bids typically increase in $5.00 increments.  Stop by the library several times to see if someone has raised your bid and bid more if you really want the item(s).  Winning bidders are notified by phone.
