“Snow People” Auction

Money raised from the sale will be donated to the Downtown Christmas Light fund….

         Thank you to the community for their generous donations to the Snow People Contest.  Linda Albright’s creation with the snow scene was the winner.  We collected more than $650! Many of the people who created the snow people have now donated them back to the library so they can be sold and the money raised from the sale donated to the Downtown Christmas Light fund.

                Here is how our silent auction will work.  The starting bid for each Snow Person is $10 with an increased bid in dollar increments. Each bidder gets an auction number to put with their bid on the Snow Person’s sheet.  You can come in or call the library (419-257-3621) with your bid and we will add it to that Snow Person’s sheet. The bidding will run until the end of business on Monday, February 22nd.  Please be generous with your bids.

                This is a great chance to get a cute Snow Person for your porch or yard while helping light up downtown for the holidays.  All the Snow People are on display inside the North Baltimore Public Library.

“Friends of the NB Library” Held Annual Meeting

Mark your calendar for the annual Book sale: October 4-9, 2021….

The Friends of the North Baltimore Public Library, Inc. held its annual meeting at the Wolfe Community Room on January 28, 2021 with seven members present. Masks and social distancing protocols were observed.

The meeting was called to order by President Connie Phillips. The Secretary and Treasurer’s reports were given and approved.

The group discussed how Covid-19 had affected the projects and money spent this year. Only one Book Sale was held and it was a success gaining $585.41. The staff had also completed a McDonald’s Night event which garnered $503.43. Memberships were down a bit but several 10 year memberships are expiring. Memberships are accepted anytime. A new Trustee, Becky Walter,  was elected for a two year term.

The group decided to only have one Book Sale this year on October 4-9 following the regular hours. More details will be publicized. It was also decided to try to schedule two McDonald’s Night events (one is spring and fall). The project list for the year was discussed and approved. It included monies for Summer Reading, Winter Reading 2022, after school snacks, staff incentives, a Staff Day contribution, a staff luncheon, Community Outreach money and an NBHS yearbook. 

The next meeting will be held in January of 2022.
