11 Livingston Manor Free Library Services Auction @ The Trout Parade. This summer you will find a variety of auctions in our area, but you may not find another like this one. At this auction, participants will bid on a variety of services contributed by fellow community members. Offerings range from important everyday services such as lawn mowing, auto care and hair cutting to more indulgent, pleasurable services such as party organizing, catering and trip-leading. Instructional services will be available such as fly-fishing, ballroom dancing and business planning. Watch out for some rare prizes, some finally-I’m-going-to-do-it opportunities, and some outright silly purchases (like hiring your very own couch potato)! For a peek at the list of services and a chance to bid early, go to http://guides.rcls.org/libraryauction between May 27 and June 10. Bids will be recorded and the highest bids will be carried over to the actual silent auction on June 11.
Proceeds from the auction will help support special programs and projects at the library.
If you have a service you would like to donate or would like more information about the auction, call the library at (845)439-5440.
