Vintage Books Up For Auction In Alexandria

If you’re the type that just can’t put down a good book,  put down your kindle and read this.

Julie Anderson, Public Information Officer for Douglas County, wants you to know that you have a rare opportunity. You can bid on books once shelved in the Carnegie Library in Alexandria.

A silent auction will take place at the current library at 720 Fillmore Street beginning August 24th at 10:AM and ending August 31st at 3:PM. Douglas County Library Director Dawn Dailey says,

“These books are much too valued to be thrown away. But we need to free up some storage space, so we’re offering the books to the public.”

To date, over 120 books are designated for auction with that number expected to grow. A wide range of titles will be on the block including…

If you are interested, you can complete a bidder’s ticket which will provide you with a number. You use that number to bid on the items instead of writing down your name.

Some books will have a minimum bid, but there is no limit on the number of books on which you can lays yo money down.

All the proceeds will go back to the Douglas County Library to use for equipment, other library purchases, and shushing lessons for new employees.

Now that’s money well spent!

(Thanks Pro Shushers: Kristin, Tammy, Paula, Susan, Connie, Jill, Bobbi Jo, and Dawn.)

Auction winners will be contacted Tuesday, September 2.

And, don’t forget the annual used book sale at the National Guard Amory in Alexandria.
