Pick out a tree, help the library

The third Trees, Trees, Trees event began Tuesday and runs through Saturday, Dec. 2. The silent auction features 11 uniquely decorated two-foot Christmas trees, all prepared by volunteers, available for bid in the front lobby of the downtown library.

Bidding sheets are available on the computer kiosks near the tree displays.trees-trees-trees-03

According to Friends of EPL secretary and treasurer Gayle Windsor, the money raised from the auction will go to support the efforts of the Friends, which providesĀ EPL with grants.
