Gift Basket Silent Auction
The library is having a silent auction fundraiser that runs from November 15 through December 14. Those interested can bid during library hours on festive baskets with themes such as tea, pasta, crafts, and many more. Every time patrons visit the library, they can check out a book and check their bids — supporting the library and Christmas shopping at the same time.
The library is grateful to Kendra Newcombe for coming up with the idea last year, and for the success of the fundraiser. We hope that it is just as successful this year. Last day to bid is December 14. Bidding closes promptly at 4pm.

We are Now Fine-Free!
Carver Memorial Library has gone fine-free on all our materials, and forgiven any fines on borrowers' accounts. We want everyone to be able to enjoy the library without the barrier of fines. (We will still charge for lost or damaged items.) There is now a "conscience jar" on the counter for those with late books who may want to contribute. We have also extended our regular loan from two weeks to four weeks. We hope this helps people return items on time for others to use. If you have any books or movies sitting around that may be overdue, now is a great time to bring them back!
