"We the People..."

U.S. Constitution Day is Monday, September 17th.


The library will feature special information and book displays to highlight “We the People…” as well as have a preamble banner that you can add your signature to! On September 17, 1787, the delegates to the Constitutional Convention met for the last time to sign the document. We encourage all Americans to observe this important day in our nation's history.

Thanks go to the Dripping Springs chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution who provided posters and help with this celebration.

Monday Shelving Volunteer Needed

The library is in need of an Adult volunteer, who is available to shelve for us on Mondays. The shift is two hours and the exact time of the shift is flexible.   

Library shelvers are responsible for shelving all library materials in both the adult and children’s wings. Shelvers need to be able to bend, reach in order to shelve a variety of materials, and be able to push a full book cart around the library. Shelvers will also be asked to read and dust shelves when needed.


If you are interested in volunteering as a shelver, please go to our website and fill out an adult volunteer application.  You can also stop by the library to fill out and submit the application in person.
