The Maryland and Delaware Library Associations are happy to be proceeding with a jam packed virtual conference starting in October, including a virtual 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!
Donors will be responsible for the cost of delivery of the items to the winners, and we will not be using MILO for basket delivery.
Bidding will take place for three weeks from October 6 - October 27th. It will be live through Google Sheets. Winners will be notified on the evening of October 27th.
This is a great way to get your members involved in creatively helping the organization, so what are you waiting for? Submit the Donation Form by September 7th!
Come learn about innovative projects, services, and research conducted by your fellow Maryland and Delaware libraries, all in one spot.
