Silent Auction: October 10-15th, 2022
"city of Stories" celebration: October 13th, 2022

Save the date for our Fall Fundraiser event to support the Meridian Library at Orchard Park! 

Our "City of Stories" event will celebrate library stories from members in our community. We will raise support and donations for Meridian Library's new Orchard Park location - a branch dedicated to accessibility, and a space where NEW library stories will be created for patrons who haven't been able to navigate a public library in the past due to accessibility barriers.

This will be a hybrid event; our virtual silent auction will run Monday, October 10th - Saturday, October 15th, and our "City of Stories" Celebration will take place Thursday, October 13th at the unBound Tech Library (ticket required, limited availability).

For more information about this event and the new Meridian Library at Orchard Park, watch our Idaho Today interview with KTVB's Mellisa Paul!
