Illustrated Chair Auction

The Friends of the Greenfield Public Library cordially invite you to the premier auction of the season featuring more than forty chairs, stools, and wheelbarrows illustrated by local artists. Each piece will highlight the artist's favorite piece of literature, including The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, the Teddy Bears' Picnic, Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, and many others. Chairs will be on display at the library, Wilson's Abbot Gallery, and other local businesses from October 19 until November 4.

The auction will take place at Stoneleigh-Burnham School in Greenfield on November 4 from 5 - 7 with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres provided and a chair preview from 3 - 5. Joe Poirier, President of Greenfield Savings Bank, will host as auctioneer for the live auction. Silent bidding will commence on October 19 with a bid book at the library and be finalized at the event. Tickets for the auction are $15 and can be purchased at the library, the World Eye Book Shop, or Wilson's Department Store.

The Friends would like to thank Greenfield Savings Bank, Bete Fog Nozzle, Greenfield Co-operative Bank, Cleary Jewelers, the Northeast Foundation for Children, and the Stoneleigh-Burnham School for sponsoring this fundraiser and supporting the Greenfield Public Library.
