Pouring Over Books
Pouring Over Books, along with the accompanying Wine Divas Wine Tasting, is our premier annual event.
Each year, library supporters enjoy an afternoon with a local author and live music. Attendees enjoy a complimentary selection of fine wines, premium teas, and beer along with delicious light bites.
This year, the Friends decided to forego the usual Wine Diva Event, due to COVID precautions. A special party to socialize and honor these generous library supporters will be scheduled later in the year.
Generous local businesses and individuals donate marvelous items for a Virtual Silent Auction, as well. This event would not be possible without our many community sponsors who demonstrate their support of our community library.
In 2021, we enjoyed hearing from local author, Joe Nick Patoski. He entertained the audience with stories from the Texas music scene. We were also privileged to have musician, author, scholar, and more, Craig Hillis join us.
February 27, 2022, we were all excited to be together in person back at the Prospect House while also broadcasting virtually. Austin author, Sarah Bird, shared a behind-the-scenes view of her writing process and enticed us with a presentation of her newest book, Last Dance on the Starlight Pier.
Craig Hillis generously provided background music.
Thank you to our sponsors, speakers, and all the hardworking volunteers that made this year’s event possible.
We’re happy to announce that Pouring Over Books raised more than $8,200.00 for the library this year.
