The Adamstown Area Library is making plans for the sixth annual Bucks for Books Dinner and Auction to be held on Nov. 12 at Stoudt’s Black Angus Restaurant in Adamstown. Proceeds will benefit the library.

A preview will begin at 4 p.m. followed by a dinner at 5:15 p.m. The auction, under the direction of auctioneer Art Pannebecker, will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Tickets for the dinner are $40. Walk-ins for the auction are welcome after 6 p.m. at no charge. There will be a cash raffle: first prize, $300; and seven prizes of $100 each. Tickets for the raffle are $2 each or three for $5. All tickets are available from any Friends board member or at the library.

Both live and silent auctions will once again be held. Items to be sold include: a handmade Victorian-style doll house, two quilts, a handmade Japanese-style birdhouse and several handmade sweaters, mittens and hats.

Artwork of various mediums will be for sale by local artists including redware pottery by Ned Foltz and Nolde Forest Pottery. Gift certificates to local restaurants, Reading Phillies, Reading Royals and a birthday party at the Adamstown YMCA will be available.

Also up for bid are a cocktail and appetizer party, a gourmet champagne dinner for six, a lasagna dinner, a brunch for six or eight, an English tea for six and a getaway vacation to Cape Cod. Memberships are up for bid to the Ephrata Rec Center, Adamstown YMCA, Reading Public Museum and Denver Community Pool.
