Pouring Over Books

On Sunday, February 27, 2022, from 3:00 to 5:30 p.m., the Friends will host the 11th Annual Pouring Over Books fundraiser as a hybrid event. We will host both an in-person event and stream live for those who prefer to attend virtually.

The generous local venue, The Prospect House, is donating the use of their impressive venue. Please consider them for your special occasion.

This event is our biggest fundraiser and will include a discussion and book signing with Sarah Bird, a well-known Texas author of many bestselling books.

Enjoy music by Craig Hillis, and your choice of craft beers, wines, or fine teas accompanied by tasty bites. While you’re at the Prospect House check out the auction items, too. This year we’ll be offering all the auction items virtually with the Bidding Owl platform.

How We Help

$17,000 Donated in 2021 by the Friends for library equipment, programs, and services for our growing community.

11,000 Active library patrons use our local Dripping Springs Community Library to access library equipment, programs, and services, early learning software, summer programs, musical concerts, an expanded eReader program, a Maker’s Space, and so much more.

In 2021, some of the Friends donated money was spent on:

● Rental of a 30-foot x 50-foot outdoor tent to safely hold kids’ summer events.
● Book awards to children completing the Little Reading Buddies program.
● The Elephant Tales summer reading program.
● Summer Jazz Concerts on the Porch.
● Books for the Battle of the Books participants.
● A Virtual Cartooning Events.

The Dripping Springs Community Library is an essential resource. Look at these
numbers:

There are 41,804 people living in the library service area
and 10,062 library active library cardholders.

Featuring Sarah Bird

We are excited to host Sarah Bird, bestselling novelist, screenwriter, essayist, and journalist who has lived in Austin, Texas since long before the city became internationally cool.

She has published ten novels and two books of essays. Her eleventh novel, LAST DANCE ON THE STARLITE PIER–a gripping tale set in the secret world of the dance marathons of the Great Depression–will be released on April 12th.

Sarah was chosen in 2017 to represent the Austin Public Library as the hologram/greeter installed in the Austin Downtown Library and she was a co-founder of The Writers League of Texas.

Her awards and honors would fill three more paragraphs so just let me assure you you don’t want to miss this event.

She and her husband enjoy open-water swimming and training their corgi puppy not to eat the furniture.
