Tell us about your
favorite auction find’
Calling all Back Mountain
residents, auction attendees,
collectors and treasure hunters!
If you've ever attended a
Back Mountain Memorial
Library Annual Auction and
found one of your most “cher-
ished” items over the “block”
or amidst the auction tents, the
library wants to hear from you.
Help spread the word about all
of the interesting and “just-got-
ta-have-it” items that are always
the best part of auction fun,
Visit the library before June
17 and jot down your favorite
“find,” most cherished or un-
usual item that you purchased
during any of the 66 past
auctions and deposit your slip
in the jar on the library’s front
desk. You may add the reason
you purchased it, why you love
it or what it means to you. Slips
may include your name or if
you don’t want to “admit” your
purchase to anyone, you may
remain anonymous.
A listing of these “treasures”
will appear in the next library
news article. So start think-
ing and searching throughout
your homes so you, too, can
take pride in what the auction
means to all of us in the Back
And, while you're looking
for this item, don’t forget it’s
a great time to pack up a few
(not-so-favorite) items that
you no longer need and donate
them to the auction. Donations
of items are also currently
being accepted during normal
library hours. Household items,
Nearly Olde vintage collectibles
and dishes, slightly used books
and antiques are needed and,
of course, new goods items and
gift certificates to area busi-
nesses are always popular.

registration for children’s Sum-
mer Story hours will begin on
Tuesday, June 11. You may call
the library at 675-1182 begin-
ning at 9:30 a.m. on that day to
