Book It...To Your Favorite Destination is the theme for this year's Johnson County Library Benefit Auction, which will happen this Friday evening at the library, beginning at 6 pm.

Library Director Cynthia Twing tells us more about the theme.

The auction will begin at 6pm with a reception and the silent auction, and the oral auction will begin at 7:30.

Those attending are encouraged to wear clothing appropriate to their favorite destination.

Along with the auctions, there will be food from the different destinations, wine, fun and live music from the Fireants. The Friends of the Library will raffle their “Fill your Kitchen” basket which includes $200 for use at local grocery stores, wine, cookbooks, gadgets and more assorted items. Raffle tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5.

Proceeds got to current library needs as well as the endowment fund. Twing explains how the event began and why.

For every dollar raised for the endowment, the State of Wyoming will match with $2.

Tickets are $15 apiece for the benefit, and are limited. Twing said 40 to 50 tickets are still available but they go fast. If there are tickets left over, the library will post the information on the main entrance Friday afternoon and they can be purchased at the door.

The library will be closed Friday to set up for the event.
