Share the Library Card Adventure!

Wednesday, November 1 - 21, 2014

Prize: Two Alamo Drafthouse Tickets


Share the adventure of your hometown library with a newcomer! Bring a new neighbor or a family member to library to get their own library card and both of you might go to the movies together!
You "the referring member" and the new member, can enter a drawing for a pair of tickets to the Alamo Drafthouse.


Note: Dripping Springs Community Library serves residents in 9 zip codes including all DSISD students and their families, all area teachers, and all Hays County residents. So help newcomers find their way to the library's treasures, do a good deed, and grow a new friendship all at the same time!


You will see the local effort reflected in the new leaves on the oak tree behind the Main Desk! Wouldn't it be great to see a hundred leaves on this poor bare tree stump! As you you reach out to new people around you, you will help the library's friendship oak tree come alive!

Mah-jongg

2012-Mah-jongg
Accomplished players and interested participants alike are invited to rattle the tiles and join the fun! Mah-jongg enthusiast Elizabeth Glidden will introduce you to other players  and get you started.  Bring a current Mah-Jongg card and your set if you have one.

“Mah-jongg is played with four players using tiles stamped with Chinese symbols,” said Elizabeth Glidden.  “The goal of the game is to be the first to match your tiles to a specific hand from the National Mah Jongg League's (NMJL) annually distributed scorecard by picking and discarding.  It’s rather like the card game Gin Rummy – only faster! I will provide my own set of Mah-Jongg and have handouts to teach the rules of play.”

Want to be included in the fun?  Email suzanne@dscl.org to receive email reminders each month!  Check the event calendar for dates.
