The Silent Auction
In addition to the fantastic concert, we will also be hosting a silent auction in the lobby of the Broomfield Auditorium. You will find items ranging from $5 grab-bags to lovely baskets. Here are a few photos of some of our auction items to whet your appetite.
Clockwise from top left: A Breakfast Basket, a collectable Wood Swiss Music Box (made by Reuge), a Handmade Shaker Tray, and a Kindle Fire 7 with Alexa.
The silent auction is free, begins at 2:00 pm, and is open to all. We hope to see you there!
More cool items are coming in for the silent auction…. here are photos of:
- A ceramic bowl filled with items for an Italian dinner (including a bottle of wine tucked into the back!)
- A chocolate-lovers gift basket (perfect for Valentine’s Day)
- A gorgeous hand-crafted wooden box and a beautiful wooden bowl
- A collectable metal car
Our Design Contests are Over
The Logo Design
Congratulations CiCi Sharstrom!
Here is our new logo—we love it and are excited to launch a more contemporary design, created by our contest winner CiCi Sharstrom. We love that CiCi picked up on some of the imagery we have been using in our materials, but did it in a cleaner, more graphic way. Congratulations to Cici and thanks to everyone who entered the logo design contest—we appreciate your ideas and hard work.
We appreciate both your interest and your quality entries!
The Bookmark Design Contest
Our bookmark design contest also generated some very cool entries. The winners of the contest are:
- Age 3-6: Yeros Kael Girón, age 5. The design Yeros created was inspired by ARF!—a program in which students in kindergarten through fifth grade build confidence and fluency by reading aloud to trained therapy dogs. It’s one of many inspiring children’s programs!
- Age 7-10: Morgan Connors, age 9. “Dear BLFF,” wrote Morgan, “I really think my bookmark has a message many people need to hear.” We agree, Morgan: We LOVE reading, learning, and growing together at the library.
- Age 11-14: Colton Fairbairn, age 12. Colton filled his bookmark with visual references to some of his favorite kinds of books— myths, mysteries, fantasy, and sci-fi—as well as specific characters. Identifying everything he included is a fun challenge!
Join Our Team
We are currently looking for new members to join our Board of Directors.
This is a fun opportunity to dedicate a couple of hours per month to a wonderful cause. We (the BLFF) are an all-volunteer group who works to help raise both awareness and funds for our beloved Broomfield library.

We would love to visit with you!
Not only is this a great opportunity to give back to your community, but think how nice it would look on a résumé?
