Join Us for the 11th Annual Pouring Over Books Event!

Each year has been more fun and raised more money for the library!

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.

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.
