The Blanco Library is pleased to announce that The Libri Foundation has donated 80 children’s books to our community. The Libri Foundation’s mission is to help rural libraries like ours to provide the best quality children’s collection to encourage and nurture a love for reading and learning. The Friends of the Blanco Library raised donations at their annual Dinner and a Movie in the spring that the Foundation matched 2-1. The collections of new books are showcased in our library, but join us August 29th at 6pm for a Special Collection Party and August 30st at 10:30 am for a special Libri Story Time!

We are so happy to see all of the beautiful Hill Country pictures that are coming in. If you want a chance to win a FREE NOOK, email your pictures to as well as fill out one of our media release forms from our website. All submissions are due August 31st and please make sure the pictures can be at least 8.625" by 11.125" at a resolution of 240 dpi.

It has now been one month since we started our new catalog system and installing the new furniture funded by the Tocker Foundation. We would like to know what you think of these new amenities. Let us know today by taking the survey posted on our website or filling out a survey in our library.
