The event is organized by the Friends of the Library and attracted about 60 people.

Tasty Treats started seven years ago and has become a popular tradition at the library, a way for the organization to express its thanks to the community, said organizer Grace Kent.

This year’s event included a silent auction for an oak chair from Swan Library that was painted by artist Cheryl Watson of Lyndonville. The winner will be announced on Dec. 23.
