Children’s Illustrators Auction Art Gallery Reception

Sunday, December 5, 2021

This is your opportunity to see all of the art that has been donated for the Friends of the APL Children's Illustrators Auction! And, you might even be able to meet some of the illustrators - several of whom will be present. Please join us for this very special event and then plan to go home and bid, bid, bid!

If you have not yet heard about the Friends online Children's Illustrators Auction, you are in for a treat! But, some people don't like to buy things sight unseen so we're showing off the art for this very special event. We hope you can make it, view the art, meet the illustrators, and chat with local children's book enthusiasts (that would be us -  the Friends, the Trustees and the librarians :). 

The theme of the auction is Freedom: Be who you are, Love who you love, Read what you want, and the art reflects this message through the eyes of the illustrators.

The auction will be on Ebay from Wednesday December 1st at 8pm [ET] to Wednesday December 8th @ 8pm [ET]. All links will point to Ebay after December 1st. This site is a preview of what will be available to bid on at that time. You can find all of the details of the auction – bidding, shipping, etc – on our FAQ page

All proceeds from the auction will help the Friends of the Ashland Library in their support of the library's services and programs. We are thankful to all of the artists who generously donated their art and books to help support the Ashland Public Library.
