The old East Library chairs are being auctioned! For those interested in vintage Herman Miller Eames chairs and other furnishings, there will be an auction on Thursday, July 25, at 414 E. Mason St., the Milwaukee location of Leslie Hindman Auctioneers. You can bid in person, over the phone, or online.

To see the items available, visit http://www.lesliehindman.com/ and click on "Milwaukee Summer Auction" on the right. The library furniture is lots 608 through 625. For more information, you can contact Margaret O'Neil at margaretoneil@lesliehindman.com.

This is only the first of four auctions at which library furniture will be available. The others are in Chicago on August 21, in Milwaukee on November 7, and a third date and location to be determined. The proceeds from the auctions will go towards public art projects for the new East Library.
