LITTLE ELM FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
Congratulations to 2021-2022 Scholarship Recipient Aidan Potts!
Each year the Little Elm Friends of the Library sponsors merit-based scholarships to local high school Seniors to support the area's continued educational achievement.
Applications are open to all public, charter, trade, or home school students who are Senior grade level for the current scholarship year, and who reside or attend school in the Little Elm area. Recipients must meet GPA, references, and volunteer hours criteria. The selection of awardees is a joint effort between LEFOL representatives and library staff. Beginning with the 2020-2021 school year, the Friends are awarding one $4,000.00 scholarship.
Applications may be returned to the library in person, mailed to Friends of the Library, Attention: Scholarship Committee, 100 W. Eldorado Parkway, Little Elm, TX 75068, or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications for the 2022-2023 school year will be accepted in the fall.

2022 Trivia Night is a wrap!
Thank you to everyone who helped make our signature event a success!
Congratulations to this year's winners, the Little Elm Economic Corporation,
and the winners of the Campus Cup, Team Lakeview from Lakeview Elementary School!
Trivia Night 2022 is a wrap, and our throwback theme, "Party Like It's 2019," ensured a night of fun and frivolity! This year we had something special for our LEISD staff, teachers, boosters, and PTA groups: in addition to our regular traveling trophy, the highest-scoring school-affiliated team earned a year's bragging rights by winning our new Campus Cup trophy to display at their school for the next year!
For 24 years, Trivia Night has been the major fundraiser for the Little Elm Friends of the Library and has become an annual tradition for many of Little Elm's residents and businesses. Each year up to 50 teams from the community compete against and interact with friends, family, and coworkers during an evening of fun, food, and prizes. Food concessions, prize drawings, a silent auction, and awards for best team costumes and best team spirit make for a raucous, good time!
Proceeds from Trivia Night support the Little Elm Public Library; in years past, these funds have been used to purchase new computers, Makerspace equipment, books, furniture, and sculpture. Beginning in 2021, proceeds began funding a $4,000.00 scholarship for a deserving Little Elm-area student. More information on the Little Elm FOL Scholarship Program can be found below.
2021 TRIVIA NIGHT
Congratulations to our 2021 Trivia Night winners, Team ZipIt!
Congratulations to 2020's winning team The Corpse Corps!
They generously donated their $500
Grand Prize back to the Little Elm Friends.
Trivia Night 2021 was a hybrid virtual and in-person event hosted by Tower's Tap House. Competitors could play virtually from the comfort of their own homes with friends and family using Zoom video conferencing and the Kahoot! game app. For many in-person participants, this year's Trivia Night was their first major post-pandemic event, and provided a great opportunity to reconnect with friends. Little Elm Public Library and The Friends thank everyone who participated and supported us through 2020 and 2021.
