- TRIVIA 2016 WINNERS-RTI Varsity
Retractable Technologies continues to be a generous corporate partner of Little Elm Friends of the Library Trivia Night over the years. The RTI Varsity team donated their $500 Grand Prize back to the Little Elm Friends. Thanks for supporting your public library!
- Trivia Night is the annual major fundraiser for Little Elm Friends of the Library in Little Elm, Texas. Now in its 18th year, Trivia has been a major tradition for many of Little Elm's residents and businesses. It's a fun and competitive way to interact with friends, family, and coworkers. Over the years, the Friends organization has used proceeds to purchase many resources for the Little Elm Public Library, including reference books, furniture, computers, sculptures, online resource subscriptions, and much more. Recently, we purchased about $35,000 in assets for the expanded library using proceeds from past Trivia Night events!
Each year, the event hosts over 50 teams from the community to compete against each other during an evening of fun, food, and prizes. Concessions (BBQ sandwiches, chips, pizza, popcorn, drinks, and candy) are available at the event, so we ask that you do not bring in outside food. We also have great drawings and a silent auction. Awards will be given out for best team costumes and best team spirit. The grand prize for the trivia competition is $500 cash to the winning team! The winning team gets possesion of the coveted Trivia trophy for the remainder of the year!
Congratulations to this year's recipients of the annual Little Elm Friends of the Library Scholarships!
Lisa Cifuentes has been awarded a $1,000 scholarship. Stephanie Lopez and Jaynae Renter have each been awarded $500 scholarships.
FOL scholarships are merit-based and require the applicants to meet GPA, references and volunteer hours guidelines. Selection of awardees is a joint effort between FOL representatives and Library staff. Thanks to all that applied!
