MARQUETTE — The Peter White Public Library is cleaning out its closet and selling some unique antiques as a fundraiser for library programs.
Thursday kicked off the treasure sale on the second floor of the library where a slew of storage items are up for sale. Some pieces are from the Ruth Black Collection that was donated to the library in 2002 while other pieces are old programming supplies no longer in use. You can find everything from full sets of china to antique dolls – and all of it goes to help library programs.
“With our operating funds going down, we have to raise more money,” said PWPL Director, Andrea Ingmire. “his is one of the ways we thought we could short-term clean out closets and raise money for the library. There’s always a lot going on here so you can double up on your library visit today.”
The library is also holding a silent auction for some of the nicer pieces, like furniture. The silent auction runs through September and the highest bidder will be notified at the end of the month. The treasure sale runs today, tomorrow and Saturday during library hours.
