The Silent auction COULD NOT RUN without all our dedicated volunteers. We have a gazillion opportunities including: organizing, envelope stuffing, setup, schmoozing, displaying and cleanup. No skills necessary. We offer flexible hours, a friendly atmosphere and lots of time to peruse the auction tables.
Bid, and keep bidding
Without you bidding, the auction would just be a high end yard sale. A variety of items in every price range make it possible for everyone with a big or small pocketbook to participate. and it's no fun without a bidding war. Bid, keep bidding and bid often.
About the Silent Auction
The MLF Silent Auction is an annual MLA Conference tradition. Donations come in from librarians, libraries, local businesses and individuals at large to support the Foundation and its mission. This volunteer-run auction brings with it not only a fair number of unique items to outbid your colleagues, but also offers a chance to network with the Minnesota library community, to work for a good cause, and to just have fun.
