Friends of the Library hold silent auction

The Quincy Friends of the Plumas County Library are holding a silent auction at Plumas Bank in downtown Quincy through Friday, July 29.

The silent auction features books that are of special interest or higher value than the friends’ average book sale offerings. You can browse through these books at your leisure in air-conditioned comfort during Plumas Bank’s normal hours.  And you can bid on as many of them as you like, as often as you like. Detailed instructions are available alongside the bid items.

One of the most magnificent entries in this month’s auction is a set of 13 beautiful books of the world’s greatest literature. These books are exquisitely bound in gold and red, and are in like-new condition. They feature works of Shakespeare, Emerson, Ibsen, Oscar Wilde, Tolstoy, and eight other great writers.

An item that would make a perfect gift is a brand-new “Thompson’s Chain Reference Bible,” bound in butter-soft leather and gift-boxed. This is a reference Bible that includes “thought suggestions” opposite the verses alongside the Bible’s text.

There’s also a classic edition of Gray’s Anatomy, and beautiful editions of the works of John Steinbeck and Charles Dickens, sold separately. A beautiful large-format book features the works of Frederic Remington, whose art is famous for capturing images of the Old West.

There’s something for every pocketbook in this auction with several lovely books having a starting bid as low as $5.

The Friends are also planning a full book sale Aug. 4-6. This sale will take place at the Plumas County Library on Jackson St. in Quincy. They’ll have more information on that soon, so mark your calendars.

In the meanwhile, come spend some time at the Friends’ Silent Auction at Plumas Bank in Quincy. By placing a bid, you’ll be supporting your library, and you may just end up with some beautiful new books to while away these hot summer afternoons.

The Friends of the Library want to thank Plumas Bank for once again hosting this event.
