A final word and a thank-you | Slave Lake Book Auction

Well folks, that’s a wrap for the Slave Lake book auction.


While the auction was an unbelievable amount of hard work, it was also a lot of fun. I LOVED watching the bidding wars going on and all the fun comments between bidders, egging each other on (yes Angie, I’m looking at YOU!). I loved that some of the books were hand delivered to the winners. I loved that authors offered up a SECOND copy to auction losers who wanted to pony up the same amount as the winners. I loved that up until the last post I was still getting donations in.

So thank you all so, so much for making this auction a roaring success. Because of you Slave Lake Library now has $4,909 to put towards rebuilding their library.

And that’s just freaking awesome.

Despite not winning any books, this is still beyond awesome. Great job Colleen!

  1. All of your donors and bidders might be interested to note that the new Slave Lake library opened its doors in June. It’s a fabulous space with more titles and all kinds of new and exciting programming. You can see pictures on their website: http://www.slavelakelibrary.ab.ca/rebuild-and-move-2013
