Volunteers/Donations Wanted

HAMPSTEAD — Planning for the next Friends of the Hampstead Public Library’s Auction is well underway already. The Auction will take place on Fri., November 15, starting at 5:30 p.m. at the Granite Rose off Rte. 111 in Hampstead. Donations from area businesses have started coming in and may be seen in the Friends section of the library’s website, www.hampsteadlibrary.org. Tickets will go on sale immediately after Labor Day.

The organizing committee is now looking for volunteers from the community to lend a helping hand. There are many different ways in which you could help if you want to volunteer your time. Starting now volunteers are needed to help ask for donations and to pick up promised ones from donors. Before the Auction they will be needed to assemble and wrap baskets. The day before the event help will be needed to set up the space at Granite Rose and to blow up balloons. The night of the Auction volunteers will be needed to sell raffle tickets, assist with the live Auction and help take down and clean up when it’s all over around 10:00 p.m. If you’d like to assist the Friends in making this year’s Auction even better than the one in 2011, please call Ruth Paul at 603-489-1978 or Linda Skidmore at 603-329-8032. Either lady will be able to give you more detail about what is needed.

Businesses and professionals in the greater Hampstead area are encouraged to make a donation early. The sooner your donation is received, the sooner your name will be listed in the donor list online at the library’s website. Donors whose gifts exceed $100.00 in value will also have their logo printed on the cover of the Auction program. Giving to the Friends of the Library Auction is giving to the community because all proceeds from the Auction will be used in support of your public library. The goal for the funds raised this year is to purchase an electronic messaging sign to be installed in front of the library. The publicity you receive from donating will enhance your presence in the area. If you’d like to make a donation, please call either Ruth or Linda at the numbers above to let them know. They will arrange to have your donation picked up if it can’t be mailed in. All donations are tax deductible because the Friends are a 501©3 organization.

Support the Hampstead Public Library by volunteering for or donating to the Auction.
