Some Murphysboro businesses and individuals have donated more than 150 items to be auctioned off in the 12th Annual Friends of the Sallie Logan Library Silent Auction.
The items, which include themed baskets, gift certificates and more, are up for bids for the Friends' biggest fundraiser of the year.
"Hundreds of individuals support the auction by volunteering their time, making donations, and by bidding on items," said Library Director Loretta Bloomfield. "This auction would not be possible without volunteer support."
The library's summer reading program, large print collections, electronic book subscriptions, research databases and other special projects all benefit from the proceeds from the auction.
The auction continues during business hours and will end on Monday, December 7.
Individuals 18 and older may obtain a bid number and participate Monday through Thursday, from 10-7; and Friday and Saturday from 10-5.
The Sallie Logan Library is located at 1808 Walnut, Murphysboro, Ill.
Membership in the Friends of the Library is $5 per year and anyone is welcome to join.
