The Friends of The Library Foundation are gearing up for the 10th annual A Tisket, A Tasket, A Literary Basket silent auction on Saturday, April 30 at 6 p.m. at the Columbia Pipeline Group auditorium. 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 $41,000. 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.
This event is sponsored by Columbia Pipeline Group, Kanawha Valley Advertising, Karen and John Lukens, Steve and Katy White, Lisa and Larry Pack, Anne Silbernagel, Cookie Glasser, William Davis, NTV Asset Management, City National Bank, Tom and Julia Hurney, ZMM, American Electric Power, Karen Brimhall, Beth Lord, Jeanette Alexander, Huntington Banks, Connie Goins, Colonial Exxon and Kathie and Marty Kommor.
