FRIENDS OF THE AVON GROVE LIBRARY

A 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization - Supporting the Avon Grove Library

Greetings to all the patrons of the Avon Grove Library.  Due to COVID forcing us to cancel our planned wine-tasting fundraiser, we are trying something different.  You will be able to bid on some wonderful items from the comfort of your home. All the items have been generously donated, with all proceeds going directly to the library. Your past support has made it possible to order newspapers, children's books and DVD's as well as helping to sponsor drive-in movies free to the community. We hope with your support of this auction that we can continue to provide the Avon Grove library with more programs and resources.      

 It's simple to bid!  You do not have to create an account.  You just look over the items and fill in the information. You can start bidding immediately! A confirmation email will be sent to you and we will let you know if you've been overbid.   Winners will be notified of payment details and how to collect their items at the Avon Grove Library. If you are interested to see our auction items in person, we will have a display at the library in the computer room, but all bidding will be on-line.

DIRECTIONS:  Click on an item or scroll down to see all pictures.   Our auction ends October 23 at 7PM.   Good luck!
