Waldoboro artist Jean Kigel painted one of the trays for bid as a fundraiser for Waldoboro Public Library.

Waldoboro — Artist-painted trays are the talk of the town: some are in the windows downtown; more of the trays are on display at Waldoboro Public Library; and all may be seen online at

Waldoboro Public Library is holding an ongoing silent auction for each tray between now and Saturday, March 23. Bid sheets are available where the trays are displayed, and people may bid as often and on as many trays as they wish.

Twenty-two trays were given to local artists and advanced art students for transformation into artistic creations. Final bids can be placed at the Soup and Salad Supper hosted by the trustees of the library Saturday, March 23, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Soule-Schuman VFW Hall, 40 Mill St. Proceeds from the auction and supper will benefit the library’s operating funds.

The tray auction is sponsored by The First. In town, trays may be seen at the Community Pharmacy, Mom & Squawk, Village Bakery, Medomak Community Market, Cumler & Lynch Law Offices, Medomak Valley Land Trust and the library on Main Street/Route 220.
