Derby Day Silent Auction
We invite all our patrons and supporters to come out for a fun evening in support of the Arvin A. Brown Library. Come and watch the Kentucky Derby while you browse and nibble and bid! The Richford Country Club plays host for this wonderful event. Not only will we watch the Kentucky Derby race and pre-race festivities, but you will have the chance to browse and bid on a selection of items donated by businesses and artists and well known Vermonters.
