An orignal canvas by celebrated local artist Burton Penner is now up for silent auction with proceeds to benefit the 
Dryden Public Library’s Library Shelving Fund. 

An original Burton Penner painting, generously donated by members of the community, will be auctioned to support the Library’s ongoing fundraising campaign to replace shelving throughout the Children’s and Adult sections of the Library.  The Dryden Public Library has currently raised $7500 toward our $50,000 goal.

Blind bids will be accepted from  Monday, November 13 until Friday, December 8 at 4:00 pm.  The painting will be on display in the Library for the duration of the auction.  Bids must be made in person.
