Friends sponsor teen service project – Little Free Library for Foster Village

Our TAB teens had a busy, productive meeting at the The Bee Cave Arts Foundation. They took their monthly meeting across the street to The Hive and got hands-on with the Little Free Library painting project so it can be ready to deliver to Foster Village in the next couple of months! Big thank you to The Bee Cave Arts Foundation for hosting the visit and letting them explore your exhibits and then paint in your creatively inspiring space!

Friends support charity {{knitting}} event!

We are starting the year off by supporting our Bee Cave Public Library’s Knitting Club.   They are participating in a global initiative called “25,000 Tuques” (French for “25,000 Woolen Hats”).  They held an event earlier this month called Knit-In Night and recently were in the Statesman.

All month long, until the end of January, they are encouraging people to knit or crochet hats at home to bring to the library and even supplying loaner hat looms to take home.

They are also making welcoming notes that will be mailed with the hats.

Want to help?

The library will be accepting hats and notes until the end of January and we need your help at our next Friends meeting, February 10th at 4:00pm. We’ll be counting and boxing all the wonderful tuques and getting ready to ship. We will also finish the project by helping with some of the postage needed. This event is possible with the financial assistance provided by the Friends of the Bee Cave Public Library.

We couldn’t do it without your support! Thank you!

 

Come See the Friends at SpringFest ’15

Hope everyone is planning on coming to check out SpringFest on Saturday May 2nd! This year, the event will be held at the Hill Country Galleria and the Friends will have a booth set up right in front of the library. So stop by, say hello and hear what the Friends have been doing these last few months. Also get a sneak peak on how the Friends are helping the library gear up for the big Summer Reading program this year and maybe how you can get involved in supporting your library.

Love Your Library! Make the Staff Tacos!

Thephoto 1 library staff was thrilled and surprised when coming to their monthly staff meeting to find an amazing spread of homemade breakfast tacos, muffins and fresh fruit and coffee! Every year, the American Library Association chooses a day in April to encourage communities nationwide to celebrate “National Library Workers Day“. This year the Friends group decided they wanted to show their love and support to the library staff by bringing them breakfast on one of their early work days.

A job well done to Friends members Bernadette Johnson, Carol Woeber and Fred Woeber for all the work they put into planning this event and going the extra mile with having everything homemade. Library staff all agreed that it was the best staff meeting yet and was the perfect way to start out their day.
