ALPHA—The Porter School Library is having the second birdhouse raffle in a series of historic building replicas.


 This year, artisan Judi Tuell has created a birdhouse depicting the Village Hall in Alpha. Her craftsmanship shows in the fine details and quality of her work.
 Local resident Linda Bjork was the winner of the previous birdhouse, which represented the historic Porter School.
 The Village Hall birdhouse will be on display at the Alpha General Store, where tickets are available for $2 each or three for $5.
 All proceeds from this raffle will benefit the Porter School Library, helping to pay for supplies, rent and utilities.
 The drawing will take place this December on the last day the library is open for the 2012 season.
 “You can find other works of art that have been created by Judi at the Porter School Market Place in Room 106 and Unleashed,” said a spokesperson.
  The Market Place is open Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
 The Porter School Library is a non-profit corporation that is run by volunteers.
 The Library Board and its volunteers are proud to provide youth reading programs; opportunities to meet local authors; inexpensive, gently used books for sale and most of all a diverse selection of books in our lending library
 “If you would like to lend a helping hand a few hours a month, please call 875-1075.”
