Trash or Treasure Brings Appraisers to Royalton Hartland Community Library

Public invited to bring items to “Antiques Roadshow” style event

If you have ever wondered if some of your family heirlooms or that item that caught your eye at a garage sale are of any great value? Now is the time see what they may really be worth.

Bring them to the “Trash or Treasure” event at the Royalton Hartland Community Library, 9 Vernon Street in Middleport, on Wednesday, November 14 from 5 to 8 p.m. and get a verbal appraisal of their value.

Mr. John Urtel and Mr. Dave Devereau, both experienced appraisers, will be providing their opinion on items that anyone can bring to the library that evening. Items must be manageable by one person, including furniture. The cost is $5 for two items and $2 each for any additional items. Each participant is allowed a total of 8 items.

“We expect a lot of people to bring us their items, whether large or small,” says Mary Collins of the Friends of the Library. “People love to get an idea of what their valuables may really be worth, and we want to make sure that everyone gets a chance to hear their verbal appraisal.”

Refreshments will be served during the evening thanks to the Friends of the Library group. The volunteer group’s activities support and help to promote and publicize the library’s programs and services throughout the Royalton and Hartland area.

“Proceeds from the “Trash or Treasure” event will be used to provide improvements to the upstairs Community Room, which is a popular meeting place for local groups and clubs,” according to Collins.
