HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS – ONLINE AUCTION (11/16/20 through 12/1/20)

The Louis T. Graves Memorial Public Library will be hosting an on-line fundraiser in November to help with budget shortfalls due to canceled events earlier this year.  “Home for the Holidays” consists of themed baskets that will be for sale through 32auctions.com/HOMEFOR.  If you are looking for a gift for the holidays, stay-at-home nights, or a treat for yourself, sign on to the auction site (November 16 THROUGH December 1) and start bidding.  Twenty-five baskets are being designed and donated by friends of the Library, which means that 100 percent of the sales will directly benefit the Library.  A few choices to consider:  A Night in Boston’s North End (sort of), Tequila Mockingbird, Of All the Gin Joints, Games People Play, and many, many more.  Please feel free to call us at (207) 967-2778 for more details.

Once the auction closes (8:00 pm on December 1), you will be notified if your bid was the highest and we will make arrangements for pick up, shipping, etc.  Some perishables will need to be added prior to pick up for freshest content.  We hope you will find the perfect basket for you!

The First Annual “Secret Gardens of Kennebunkport” tour will be held Saturday, July 20, 2019 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM (rain or shine). Tickets are $40 each and they can be purchased in advance at BROWNPAPERTICKETS.COM (At the website, enter : Kennebunkport – Graves Library Gardens) or at the Library at 18 Maine Street.
