The Buffalo and Erie County Public Library is celebrating its 175th year.
The system is using the landmark to reach out to their supporters, and library supporters worldwide, for donations of art works, theatrical materials and, of course, books.
Now, as a fundraiser, these items are available during the Judy Summer Tribute Online Auction.
According to Director Mary Jean Jakubowski, luminaries such as Lauren Belfer, Wolf Blitzer, Frank McCourt and Jim Kelly have donated items for the auction.
The auction was the idea of former Library Trustee Judy Summer.
