Time and Treasures  Auction

The Trustees and staff hosted the 13th annual Time and Talent Auction on April 9th at the West Barnstable Community Building. There was  a Pre-Auction Reception at the library from 5:30-6:30. We are so grateful again for all of the donations received and all of the help offered by everyone.  A big thank you to all who participated.  We appreciate your kind generosity so much!  The night was successful and we all had a great time.  See you again next year!
