FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY
The Little Elm Friends of the Library is a dedicated group of people who are committed to sustaining and improving the Library.
The Little Elm Friends of the Library meets the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 7:00pm at Little Elm Public Library, unless otherwise stated. Please check the calendar for meeting and event dates.
2021 TRIVIA NIGHT:
MARCH 30TH, 2021 at 6:30 p.m.
Trivia Night is the major fundraiser for Little Elm Friends of the Library, and has become an annual tradition for many of Little Elm's residents and businesses; through 2020, the event has hosted over 50 teams from the community to 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 made for a raucous, good time!
For Trivia Night 2021, there will be a live event at Tower's Tap House and also the opportunity to play virtually, using Zoom video conferencing and the Kahoot! game app. Virtual players will need two devices: a desktop or laptop device to view the presentation and read the questions, and a handheld touchscreen device with the Kahoot! app downloaded, to tap or type your answers. The Kahoot! app is free to download from the Google Play Store or Apple's App Store. Registration is $10.00 per person, but please feel free to play along with friends or family nearby!
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 sculptures. For 2021, proceeds will also be used to fund 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.
