East Lansing Library to Host Online Auction


EAST LANSING, Mich. — The East Lansing Public Library will host an online fundraiser called Books, Basket & Bids this month in place of its usual in-person event.

The fundraiser will take place from April 18 to 25.

Participants will have the chance to bid on more than 70 gift baskets donated by sponsors, organizations and local businesses. There will be a variety of items you can find inside the gift baskets, including theater tickets, East Lansing Family Aquatic Center passes, and restaurant gift certificates.

“It’s always humbling to see the outpouring of support for the library every year for our silent auction. We are truly grateful to all of the businesses and community members who donated incredible auction items and we are so grateful to our patrons for participating and helping us achieve our fundraising goals” said East Lansing Public Library Director Kristin Shelley.

Those wishing to participate will need to create an account to place a bid at www.32auctions.com/elpl where the auction will take place. It will go live at 7 a.m. on April 18, and you can place bids throughout the week.

The auction will end at noon on April 25 and the highest bidders will be able to pick up their items at the library’s loan counter.

All proceeds will be invested in tools to improve library programming for all ages.
