Friends of the Library

Friends Annual Meeting: Antiques Roadshow

Sunday, Nov. 4 • 2 p.m. • Large Meeting Room
Join the Friends, attend the Annual Meeting, and enjoy an “antiques roadshow” experience with professional appraiser Rex Newell. Have you wondered if that special treasure is really worth anything? Rex will tell us what is hot in today’s antique market and what is not. The first 40 members to register receive a free oral appraisal, but all attendees will enjoy the show. Note: Rex does not appraise firearms, Native American, or Oriental antiques. Interested in attending? Join the Friends and register online at the link below.
