Book, gift basket auction set

From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Feb. 9, the Friends of the New Albany-Floyd County Public Library will hold its annual Book and Gift Basket Auction in the library’s auditorium.

While enjoying light refreshments, you can bid on books ranging from a rare 200-year-old leather-bound volume to books autographed by best-selling authors like Pat Conroy, Elizabeth George, Amy Tan and Khaled Hosseini.

Gift baskets include the ever-popular chocolate, tea and coffee baskets — and of course, the wine basket.

The Book Lovers basket combines bestsellers with a one-pound box of Schimpff’s book-shaped chocolates and a $20 gift certificate to Carmichael’s Bookstores.
