Make the Silent Auction your first stop of the ARTWALK 2019 experience! Located in Galería Sibley at 103 W. Holland Ave.
The ARTWALK 2019 Silent Auction offers a snapshot of the entire ARTWALK event in one place. Artists from official ARTWALK locations all over town donate artwork, so a walk through the Auction can tip visitors to the exhibits they don’t want to miss. Additional donations by collectors and artists from all over the region fill the Silent Auction with a rich variety of treasures and surprises that help make it a fascinating exhibit in its own right.
The organizers of ARTWALK not only provide one of Alpine’s most entertaining weekends each year and an economic boost to the city and its artists, they also give the Alpine Public Library the opportunity to raise needed funds while contributing an important piece of the ARTWALK event.
Bidding begins Friday and Saturday at 10 a.m. The auction closes for the night on Friday at 10 p.m., and bidding stops for good at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday. At 9:00 p.m. Saturday, the results will be announced and winners can pick up their items.

Friends of the Library volunteers provide an invaluable service to our community by delivering books, magazines, DVDs, Books-on-Tape and other materials to patrons who are unable to come to the library themselves. Today, four services come under the Homebound Program banner:
Our flagship Homebound Service for patrons with enduring disabilities;
Temporary Homebound Service for those who for a variety of reasons are temporarily unable to come to the library;
our Big Bend Regional Medical Center (BBRMC) Periodical Service that keeps the waiting room periodical selection up-to-date;
and the Brewster County Jail Library Service that helps the jail staff maintain their inmate library.
Contact the library at 837-2621, for more information on these services.
