Travel Talk

Local Residents Share Stories and Pictures from Journeys Abroad

Travel Talk has been on hold but we are planning programs starting in 2022.

Take a monthly tour from the comfort of Alpine Public Library’s AEP Multipurpose Room with Travel Talk hosts Lee Smith and Jim Robertson.

Travel Talk is usually on 4th Friday of each month, at 7 pm. Check the monthly APL program calendar for any time or date changes.

Yarn Arts

Yarn Arts is a public workshop that meets every Friday morning from 10:00 AM until noon in the APL Community Room. Anyone interested in Yarn Arts (spinning, knitting, crocheting, weaving, et al.) at all participation levels from listening to personal projects to group activities is welcome and encouraged to attend. Experienced yarn artists are available and happy to answer questions and offer advice on your personal projects. Stop by Friday mornings and join the fun.

Homebound Program

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.
