Q. How do I order?
A. Orders are no longer possible – event ended on February 28.
You can ship candy to yourself, to a friend, or to frontline workers. For frontline workers, ship to the Library at this address and we will distribute: Copper Queen Library, 6 Main Street #1857, Bisbee, AZ 85603
To ship to yourself or a friend, use your postal address. OLD BISBEE ADDRESSES: Please use the street address plus your PO Box as a hashtag. For example: 123 Main Street, #777, Bisbee, AZ 85603, to avoid extra shipping charges.
Q. What is the price of a ticket?
A. It’s free – no tickets this year – but be sure to order plenty of yummy chocolate – all profits to the Copper Queen Library!
Q. How are the proceeds from the Chocolate Tasting used?
A. Proceeds go to the Friends of the Copper Queen Library, who use the funds to pay for free year-round programming at our Library, which was named America’s Best Small Library in 2019. We fund children’s programs (such as the Summer Reading Program and Pre-School Reading Program), programming from the Arizona Humanities Council, book groups, Freewrite classes and other cultural events. And during the pandemic, our fantastic Library staff has offered hundreds of hours of free programming for children and adults, including craft kits, wellness kits, Zoom learning and story hours and so much more. Thank you for making those improvements possible!
