About Our Auction

FOSTL has six wonderfully decorated little libraries currently on display at the Springfield Town Library. They were built by volunteers with materials supplied by the Rotary Club of Springfield. Various local artists have put fantastic finishing touches on them.

Auction proceeds will be used to purchase equipment to better host in-person and online programs in the library. If you do not wish to bid, but would like to support the fundraiser, you may click on the DONATE button to help FOSTL's efforts to improve library programs.

Winners of each 'library' will be able to take them home and set them up at their choice of places (post and installation are not included). They will have an initial supply of books in them to share with your friends and neighbors.

If bidders do not have a location but still wish to support FOSTL, the Springfield Housing Authority has offered to place one or more of them at their facilities for families to enjoy.

The online auction will be available until 9 PM on July 20th.

The auction will resume as an in-person auction at the Springfield Town Library on Thursday, July 21st from 9 AM - 7 PM during our July Patron Appreciation Day. We'll have coffee and refreshments available throughout the day.

The library will also have entertainment and refreshments from 5 - 8 PM. Come check us out and be the final bidder on the item of your choice.

Winning bidders will be notified. Credit card payments are available via PayPal. Cash or checks made out to "Friends of Springfield Town Library" will also be accepted.

Winners will be responsible for picking up their "free-brary" at the library by Monday, July 25th at 7 PM.
