Several pieces were in use as recently as last year. “We have some old pictures of the library showing the Heywood-Wakefield pieces in their original locations,” said Karen Sommer, director of public relations, “and we’ll have them available for people to look at during the sale.”
An upright piano, a few industrial-looking pieces, a beautiful, old bookcase from Hoover-Bond Furniture Company, vintage lamps, cast iron Kewanee Boiler doors, old newspaper racks and sticks, wood step stools, desk chairs, display cases and units, an old air compressor, and even a pile of bricks are included in the sale. Plus, more.
Most items will be marked for quick “pay & go” sales, while some items will be sold by silent auction.
Everything is being sold in ‘as-is” condition, and all sales are final. The library will accept cash and bank cards for payment.
