The Friends of the Library announce a silent auction

Special Plumas News

Just in time for holiday gift shopping, Friends of the Library is sponsoring another silent auction at Plumas Bank in Quincy. The auction will run until Friday, December 17.

This auction is especially important because its proceeds will be used to help restore library services to the Greenville community.


One of the most magnificent entries in this season’s auction is a set of 14 beautiful first editions, bound in leather and signed by the author. This set includes books by Norman Mailer, John Updike, Joseph Heller and Joyce Carol Oates. These sleek books are a delight to look at, hold, and read, and they average several hundred dollars each.

But there’s something for every pocketbook at this auction, including beautiful books with a starting bid as low as $5. There are books about movies, books about history and, of course, books about Christmas.

When you give someone a book, you are giving them a passport to new worlds. So it’s a great opportunity to find thoughtful, not-too-expensive gifts for the special people on your list. Or just treat yourself to a cozy way to spend those long winter evenings.

The Friends of the Library would like to thank Plumas Bank for organizing this event and send their best wishes to everyone for a happy holiday season.
