Lincolnville — Lincolnville Community Library will host its third annual picnic and auction from 5 to 7 p.m. Sunday, July 27, at the Lincolnville Boat Club, 209 Main St., across from the library.

Librarian Sheila Polson said there will be an open house at the library and open air museum from 4 to 5 p.m. Food will be available for purchase: pulled pork or vegetarian beans on fresh, locally made rolls; summer salads; watermelon; cookies and lemonade.

The cost is $10 adults; $5 kids; younger than 5 and older than 90 eat free.

The money raised from the auction and food sales will go toward the library's operating expenses, Polson said. She noted that, while the library does lease the land its building is on from the town, it gets no funding from tax money.

Items for the auction, with auctioneer Rosey Gerry, include a platter of sushi made to order, a scenic plane ride, a historical tour of Lincolnville with Gerry and Lincolnville Historical Society member Diane O'Brien, pottery lessons with Randy Fein at Arts at the Center, a ceramic vase by Simon Van Der Ven, dinner at the Youngtown Inn, several gift certificates to local businesses and more, Polson said.

For more information about the library or the fundraiser, contact Polson at 763-4343 or lincolnvillelibrary@tidewater.net.
