Alpine Public Library is proud to present Dancing with Alpine’s Stars, a dance competition fund-raiser. Join us for an evening of lively entertainment as couples competitively dance their way to the top! Vote for your favorite team of dancers. Votes are $5 each, and you may vote as many times as you like (it’s a fund-raiser!). Dancers will compete for two trophies. One trophy will be awarded to the couple that receives the most votes overall. The second trophy will be awarded to the couple that receives the most votes on the night of the event. Use the buttons below to pay for dancer votes through PayPal or with a credit card. Each couple will also be soliciting votes to be counted before the event.
This exciting event will be held at the Alpine Civic Center on Saturday, February 29. Doors open at 6:30 PM, and the show begins at 7 PM. Tickets to the event are $20 for a single attendee and $35 for couples. Ticket price includes hors d’oeuvres and desserts plus one drink of beer, wine, soft drink, or water per spectator. These drinks are also available for purchase.
The proceeds from this fund-raiser will help support the operations of the Alpine Public Library. We’ll see you on the dance floor!

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.
