The Little Elm Friends of the Library is a dedicated group of people who are committed to sustaining and improving the Library.
Little Elm Friends of the Library meetings are open to the public at the Little Elm Public Library, 100 W. Eldorado Parkway (214-975-0430). Most meetings are on the third Wednesday of the month, but check the calendar for actual dates and other events.
The McKinney Team (Captained by former Little Elm Library Director, Spencer Smith) 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!
