Silent Baskets
Silent Auction 3.png

The Maryland and Delaware Library Associations are happy to be bringing back our in person Silent Auction! We need basket donations from individuals, association units, and libraries to make this a success!

Put your thinking caps on and get creative when choosing your basket theme. Some themes that have worked well in the past are graduations, Mother's Day, cats, gardens and gardening, spa day, tea and coffee, art, wine or beer, university swag, or themes from your county or unit!


This is a great way to get your members involved in creatively helping the organization, so what are you waiting for?    

Donors are responsible for delivering baskets to the Conference.  Once the Donation Form is received, you will be contacted with drop off details.

The Donation Form closes on April 20th at 5:00 pm.

We are only accepting items that are pre-registered. 

No unregistered donations will be accepted at the Conference.
