‘Books Unlimited’ Nov. 12

Coudersport Public Library’s Books Unlimited fundraiser committee will be meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 18, to begin planning for this year’s event. The 28th annual gala will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 12, in the Coudersport Consistory ballrooms and will feature door prizes, raffles, and auctions intermingled with browsing, socializing, cocktails, hors d’ouevres and desserts.

This event serves as the primary fundraiser for the library. In 2012, 51 percent of the operating revenue was raised directly through local donations and fundraisers. Last year’s Books Unlimited event raised a record $22,000.

The committee is seeking donations of items of high quality that may be offered for auctions, raffles, and door prizes. These may be gift certificates, items created by local artists and craftspeople, antiques, or any usable merchandise. Monetary donations are also appreciated. Donors may take items to the library or call 274-9382 to arrange for pickup.

Tickets will be available from committee members and at the library beginning in October.
