Maryville Public Library Holds Property Auction

The Maryville Public Library is auctioning off some of its history this month.
(MARYVILLE, Mo.) The Maryville Public Library is auctioning off some of its history this month.

The library holds an auction every year for equipment that's ready to be replaced.

Up for grabs this year - library card catalogs, that acted as the book database before computers came along.

Library staff members say these items have sparked a lot of interest.

"Since it's a sealed bid process, we have no idea what kind of amounts we're getting. So a lot of people bidding may think there's no way they have a chance for this, but we don't know what the bids are so you might as well send in a bid. You never know, you could end up with one of these, and we think it would be a great treasure to have," said Library Director Stephanie Patterson.

The library is accepting bids until September 30th. All proceeds from the auction go back to the library.
