Would you like to own a one-of-a-kind piece of art made by someone in the community? Or maybe buy it as a gift? The Cedar Springs Public Library is hosting a silent auction of unique, handcrafted cedar birdhouses and garden artwork that have been uniquely painted and decorated by community partners.

Editor Judy Reed’s entry – a stone birdhouse – will be one of more than a dozen entries up for grabs.

Auctions begin at 10 a.m. on Monday, February 14 and end at 8 p.m. on Sunday, February 27.

Birdhouses will be displayed at the library, on the library’s Facebook page at, and will be available for viewing on the auction platform.

Start thinking about birdhouses you could bid on. They would make great birthday gifts, Mothers/Fathers Day gifts, retirement gifts, or buy one for yourself to hang in your yard or display inside your home! They will do this with a ready to hang kit and instructions.

You will need a credit card to access the auction platform and place a bid. You can place bids in increments of $1 or more.

To help maximize library revenue, they would appreciate if any credit card sales also cover processing fees. The auction platform is available at

If you are the winning bid after the auction ends, they will contact you and confirm payment and pickup arrangements. Please include a phone number/email address when accessing the auction platform.

Great deals !
