13th Annual Pouring Over Books – Feb 25, 2024

On Sunday, February 25, 2024, the Friends will host the 13th Annual Pouring Over Books fundraiser at The Prospect House in Dripping Springs. This event is our biggest fundraiser and will include a discussion and book signing with acclaimed Texas author Mark Pryor, live music provided by Jerry Kirk, as well as an online auction!

Attendees will also be given a front row seat to a special multimedia presentation on the upcoming new Dripping Springs library.  The new library will be 400% larger than the existing library, and be a true centerpiece for learning and community engagement.

We are thrilled to announce that all donations this year will be matched by a generous anonymous donor!

Guests will be offered complimentary fine wines, craft beers and premium teas, as well as delicious bites.

The event runs from 3PM to 6PM. The silent auction ends at 5:00PM so winning bidders can collect their prizes at the event. Join us for this joyful event to benefit our community library!
