Searsport — Carver Memorial Library, located at 12 Union St., is having a silent auction fundraiser that runs from Nov. 16 through Dec. 16 at 5 pm. All proceeds benefit the library.

Those interested can bid during library hours on festive baskets with themes such as tea, pasta, crafts, and many more. Bids can be placed in person or by phone. Each basket will be featured on the library website, Every time patrons visit the library, they can check out a book and check their bids — supporting the library and doing their Christmas shopping at the same time.

The library is grateful to Kendra Newcombe for coming up with the idea last year, and for the success of the fundraiser.

The library is open Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesdays until 6 p.m.; Fridays are Family Day and the Children’s Room is by appointment. Masks and physical distancing are required. Curbside service is always available.

For more information, call the library at 548-2303.
