Langlois Library Silent Auction


A month Long Silent Auction fundraiser has begun at the Langlois Public Library. The Auction continues through Saturday, Sept. 12 when the annual Blueberry Bash, starting at 6 p.m., ends the auction at 6:45. Blueberry cobbler a la mode is served to attendees while they enjoy a live baked goods auction before taking home their winnings. Bidders do not have to be present to win.

The Langlois Library Silent Auction is a most eclectic shopping resource. You can bid on local foods such as spring lamb, veggies, cranberries, blueberries and albacore. Could you use a sewing machine, or a Nordic Track treadmill to keep fit during the winter? Sci Fi enthusiasts can bid on a signed Ray Bradbury book. Large women can find formal gowns and lingerie. There are passes for attractions throughout the state, including a gift certificate for tickets to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Take a thrilling aerial tour in Joe Pestana’s plane. Bid on a tutu, a small greenhouse, jewelry or Japanese dolls - - - or be practical, and bid on a load of gravel or a cord of split firewood.

The Langlois Library Silent Auction and the Blueberry Bash are sponsored by the Friends of the Langlois Library. For more information call the Langlois Library at (541) 348-2066. Read more about Langlois Library Silent Auction

An Evening with Brian Doyle


Saturday, June 6, 2015 - 7:00am

Renown Oregon author, Brian Doyle spends the evening with the community.   His first novel,  Mink River features a Oregon Coast community full of unforgettable characters. The novel is  lyrical in nature with wonderful descriptions of , not only village life, but of all the great flora and fauna that abound on our coast. .  You will fall in love with Oregon if you haven't before.  His second novel, the Plover ,continues the saga of one of the characters featured in Mink River as a sequel more or less.

Brian is well known also for his engaging talks, receptiveness and for  just plain being funny. 

Well worth a visit to our Library.  This is the first time that we have ever had the opportuntiy to host a prominent author and we are so looking forward to this  " almost famous" event. 

There are extra copies of the books at our library, should you want to read them before meeting the author. Read more about An Evening with Brian Doyle
