The Fall Book and Bake Sale was held on October 16th and 17th but attendance sagged this year. We had plenty of books but unfortunately, there was a lot of competition from other events that weekend. The Friends added a few hundred dollars to hopefully reach our annual goal to give the Library $17,500.00. Look for new ideas and venues for Future Sales!
Friends members staffed a table at the Dripping Springs Farmers Market for a couple of weeks to talk to community members and pass out activity books and balloons to shoppers. We plan more outreach in 2022 to spread the word about what we do to benefit the library.
Members of the Friends had fun at Christmas on Mercer, December 4th. They talked about the library, sold used books, and tickets for valuable Gift Baskets. We are happy to say, we raised more than $1,000.00!
