Art Chair Auction

Countdown time is nearly here! Powell River’s first ever Art Chair Auction will be on August 26 on the patio in front of the new Library.

The chairs are really amazing.  We are lucky to have so many talented artists eager to take plain wooden chairs and work their creative magic. The chairs flaunt everything from birds and bling to zentangles!

Check out local businesses around town for chair displays.  We are grateful for their support and willingness to give us some of their valuable display space.

Want to see them all and decide which one you would like in your home?  From Saturday, August 19 through Friday, August 25 all of the art chairs will be on display in the library.  You will be able to make a written bid on your favourite!

There will be one more viewing from 12 to 2 pm on August 26.  Then at 3 pm the Live Auction fun begins!  It will be a whirlwind waving paddles and the auctioneers will encourage friendly challenges to see who gets which art chair.

Check out the Facebook page where you can see all the wonderful creations in one place.

Did you know that the Library is unable to accept donated used books? However, the Friends of the Library can! We will sell your used books on our Book Cart, in book sales, or use them as prizes in draws and raffles. All funds raised will be used to purchase new books, based on the needs of the community and Library requirements.

Our Monthly Book Drive is every 3rd Wednesday 10-12pm

Come down to the Library and bring us good quality (writing and shape) books and DVDs & CDs. We cannot use old health manuals, Reader’s Digests, or magazines.
