It's only a few days away!! The Mill Pond Library's live auction on Sunday, Oct. 5th, at the Town Hall in Dalton. Doors open at 10am and the bidding starts at noon. Auctioneer Wayne Yoder, of Wautoma, has graciously offered his skills to our exciting day. Right now the library is brimming with hundreds of items that have been donated for the sale. Jon Fisco and Bob Conklin donated 2 Green Bay Packer tickets for the game against the Carolina Panthers on Oct. 19th. Snuggle up this winter in a vintage monkey wrench quilt made and donated by the St. Mary's Quilters in Kingston. Have lots of leaves to mulch? Bid on the riding lawn mower donated by Jon Radmer. Peek into some of the boxes and you'll see things from tools to toys. We also have prom dresses, gift certificates, live plants, antiques, and furniture just to list a few. There is absolutely something for everyone in the family. Take a break from the bidding with a piece of homemade pie and a scoop of ice cream. Proceeds from the auction will go towards a new copier, replacing a pressure tank, and library materials.

In the past week we've had some fabulous Ferns donated by Priscilla LaBrenz. A Wurlizter piano. Two hand-painted milk cans, one from Rosanna Wendlandt and the other from Deb Cieliesz. A tackle box with fishing supplies. And a gift certificate from Sandys Diner in Markesan, just to name a few. Have an item you would like to donate? Perhaps you received a gift that wasn't really something you could use? Donate it to the auction. What a great way to re-gift it!! Items can be dropped off at the library during the hours we are open, Monday through Thursdays from 1-6pm, and also Wed. and Sat. mornings from 9-11am. It's a great opportunity to clean out that closet or garage too. Expect an entertaining afternoon and pick up a treasure or two, while also benefitting the library!!
Other library news....we have only five Common Threads books left. If you've been thinking about getting one, don't delay. At this time we are not planning on doing another reprint. On Tuesday, Sept. 23rd stop in at the library to hear Andrea Opalewski talk about how to keep your kids out of the nurse's office this year. Boost their immune system so they're not the next child sent home from school with the flu. Andrea said, "I have a great passion for kids' health and helping families take control of their health."
