Help the Fayetteville Library

The Fayetteville Library is facing some budgetary uncertainly because the decline in the stock market has affected the Fayetteville Public Library Foundation. The library may have to ax programs due to cuts in funding from the Foundation. The library was set to ask the Fayetteville City Council for additional funding for an increase in operating hours and more materials. With a difficult economy people have been utilizing the library more frequently. However, there is an opportunity to help the library.
The Friends of the Fayetteville Public Library will host the Annual Silent Auction from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 15. The group is currently asking residents to donate new and gently used items for the sale. Items being accepted include jewelry, household items, electronics, artwork and furniture.

All right, I know we all have something that we can donate to the library. It'll be a good time to do some cleaning out of your closets, decluttering the coffee table or reducing the number of nick-knacks.
