From to time to time our parking lot becomes completely full when we have an event or popular program. Fortunately we have an agreement with HEB that allows our employees, volunteers and patrons to park in the nearby parking lot; the same holds true with Chapel in the Hills.

A library in Austin recently opened after many delays to the tune of $125 million dollars. That’s $5 million over budget for a 198,000 square foot library that is funded by bonds. It does have many amenities such as a restaurant and cooking demo area, but no programs for senior adults, and they charge for parking after the first 30 minutes — up to $7.

The Wimberley Village Library is supported by donors, The Friends of the Wimberley Village Library and ½ of 1% of the sales tax from Wimberley. The library is in the process of fundraising and designing a new building for you. For that we need your help and support in this effort. Please consider becoming a monthly donor. Go to Click on “donate” in the right-hand corner. You will be part of the Wimberley Village Library monthly givers, and we will be that much closer to a newer library and a bigger parking lot!

And we promise, we will never charge for parking!
