Books, Bites & Bids


The East Lansing Public Library will hold its annual Books, Bites & Bids fundraiser 5:30 to 8 p.m. Friday (April 12). Hosted by WKAR’s Jody Knol, the event will feature a silent auction, drinks, appetizers and an opportunity for community members to meet the library’s new director, Kevin King.

Guests can bid on a variety of auction baskets for the chance to win an annual membership to Michigan State University’s Abrams Planetarium, tickets to the Detroit Symphony Orchestra's May 2 concert at the Wharton Center, gift cards to local businesses like Saper Galleries and Custom Framing and more.

Proceeds will support the library’s Maker Studio, a space featuring 3D printers, vinyl cutters, sewing machines and other tools for digital and technical crafts. The studio also houses the library’s free STEAM programs.

Tickets are $35 per person or $70 per couple and can be purchased at the library’s service desk or through its website,
