As you know, COVID-19 has changed too many events scheduled for 2020, including the Andover Friends of the Library (AFoL) annual Goods & Services Auction.  This annual event has become the biggest AFoL fundraiser of the year, so we just can't skip it, completely.  To that end, the Friends have reinvented their auction for 2020, and are planning to run it as an "Email Auction."  Beginning July 24th, you may place your bids on a whole variety of items.  What follows is the full auction list for you to review, some items with photos.  Good luck, and thanks for your support of this great event!

 

BIDDING IS CLOSED!  ALL BIDS ARE FINAL.
 THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
