Temporary Closing of the Roxbury Library

The Roxbury Library will close for the remainder of 2021 (12/15/2021 - 12/31/2021) due to health risks posed by the surge of COVID  cases within Delaware County, as reported by the Delaware County Department of Public Health, along with recently released state-mandated COVID precautions against newly emergent COVID variants. The Roxbury Library Association is currently suspending all library services, including interlibrary loan requests and curbside pickups, until further notice.

Please do not leave voicemail messages for library staff, for the library will remain vacant through the end of the year.

The Roxbury Library Association Board of Trustees and the Roxbury Library Staff regret any inconveniences caused by the Roxbury Library’s temporary closing.

An end-of-year press release will announce Roxbury Library hours for the first quarter of 2022.

RLA 5th Annual Silent Auction

The Roxbury Library Association welcomes the public to the RLA’s 5th Silent Auction fundraiser, held virtually this year to ensure the health and safety of all participants. Beginning on Thursday, July 1, 2021, at 12:00 noon, and ending on Sunday, July 11, 2021, at 5:00 p.m.(EDT), the RLA will conduct this year’s virtual silent auction through the Charity Auctions Today website.

To view the RLA’s many outstanding auction items, ranging from antique and vintage furniture and home decor, attractively framed artwork and prints, and all types of charming collectibles, to unique dinnerware, vintage watches and jewelry, and beautifully designed quilted throws and handbags, just use the Charity Auctions Today virtual auction website link for the RLA Silent Auction,

http://www.charityauctionstoday.com/auctions/RLA-2021-Silent-Auction-22225

to establish an individual auction account, and bid on all desired items. All items will have a minimum starting bid.

Individuals not wishing to participate in the auction itself can still support this major RLA annual fundraising event by making a donation to the Roxbury Library. All RLA fundraisers enable the RLA to meet the high costs of the Roxbury Library’s operating expenses, including the newly incurred Four County Library System annual automation fees, now that the library is a 4CLS online library.

The Roxbury Library Association deeply appreciates the past generosity of all RLA Silent Auction participants and welcomes all supporters of the Roxbury Library to the RLA’s July 2021 Virtual Silent Auction. The RLA will require all winning bidders to purchase items with credit cards and to pick up purchased items at the Roxbury Library.

Please contact Dian Seiler, Roxbury Library Director, or Mary Jean Scudder, Roxbury Library Clerk, at (607)-326-7901, with questions regarding the 2021 RLA Virtual Silent Auction.
