The Campbellsport Public Library is sponsoring an artistic painted chair silent auction fundraiser, and they're calling it Sit 'N Style. Other Winnefox libraries (Markesan PL, Mill Pond Library in Kingston and Carter Memorial in Omro among others) have had success with this kind of fundraiser, so maybe it's a good fit for your library too! Here are the details:
To start off, we are asking community members & patrons to donate any old, unwanted wooden chairs. They may be dropped off at the Library between now and June 1st. Small tables and benches could also be used. Beginning June 1st, anyone interested in participating may stop in and choose a chair to take home and paint any way you like. We ask you return the finished chair to the Library by Sept. 1st, where they will remain on display for two weeks so people have a chance to look at them and place a bid in a silent auction. The money earned will be used to purchase audio books for the Library.
