The Friends of The Library Foundation are gearing up for the 11th annual A Tisket, A Tasket, A Literary Basket silent auction on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at 6 p.m. at Temple Israel on Kanawha Boulevard. Each basket has a theme that is featured around a book, DVD or other item that can be checked out of the library.

The Friends are seeking sponsorships as well as donations of baskets and items for baskets from local businesses, organizations and individuals.

Last year’s event raised more than $37,000. That money helped fund the summer reading programs for children, teens and adults; classes and events for all ages and the West Virginia Book Festival.

To sponsor this event or to make a donation, please contact Terry Wooten at or 304-343-4646, ext. 1287.
