Dale C. writes "The Friends of Windsor Library (Windsor, VT) are hosting a unique statewide fund- and consciousness-raising event benefiting all 190 public libraries in the state (more libraries per capita than any other state). They've enlisted the talents of 45 famous Vermont artists (Thacher Hurd, Gail Gibbons, etc.) in decorating wooden cutouts of Vermont maple leaves which they'll auction online until Oct 14 (the height of the leaf season), when they'll have a live Final Day Auction. It's an experiment in statewide cooperation by two groups that love libraries and the freedom to read the most: artists and Friends."
