About Our Auction
The Friends of Fredricksen holds an annual online auction to help fund the library's needs and wants. More than 150 local businesses donate gifts and services which are auctioned off in November of each year. Funds from this auction and our two book sales are used to: fund children's, teens, and adult programming, community programs, library equipment such as a new laminator, and support funding of staff and volunteer appreciation, and prizes for the new patron campaign each year. Funds we raise are requested by department heads to supplement funds in the operating budget and keep our doors open. Items include a complete orthodontic package valued at $6,300 to $3 and $5 fast food coupons and everything in between like art, jewelry, services like dry cleaning, car washes, food store cards, restaurant cards, sporting events, fun entertainment & experiences, and gift certificates to the West Shore Farmers Market.
