Estate sale raises $7,000 for library

Friends of the Shippensburg Public Library raised $7,000 during their estate sale in April. The funds are contributed to the capital campaign for the upcoming Shippensburg Public Library expansion.


Taking months to plan, the sale involved many volunteer hours sorting and displaying the items contributed and staffing the sale itself. Donated items came from members of the Friends, the library board, library staff and friends in the community. Local merchants supported the event by donating gift certificates and merchandise, and Friends members contributed baked items as well. The sale was at the Branch Creek Center, now owned by the library and a part of the expansion project.


Items remaining from the sale will be sold at auction at a time and location to be announced later.
