Ada Public Library gets ready for 3rd annual holiday silent auction

Stop by the Ada Public Library between Monday, Nov. 24 to Saturday, Dec. 6 to put in a bid on one of our holiday baskets.

Baskets are donated by local businesses and individuals, and make wonderful gifts for the holiday season, and also help the Library raise funds for our Summer Reading family programs--we've been able to raise over $2,000 the past two years!

If you'd like to donate a basket or gift,  think outside the box!

Businesses/organizations/individuals who choose to donate should drop their basket or items off at the library by closing time, Saturday, November 22nd. The library will have the cellophane and ribbons and will wrap the baskets.
