Round Top Family Library Annual Chili Cook-Off

Jan 22, 2021

Dear Friends,

Due to Covid enforcement by the County and State of Texas and in consideration of the safety of our community, the Round Top Family Library has cancelled it’s annual chili cook-off for 2021.  This would have been our 17th year for this fun community event.  The tradition will continue in 2022 in a big way!!!

This annual event raises income needed to keep the library operations running for a year.  We normally raise at least $25,000 from the chili cook-off, which is a significant portion of our annual budget.  Our hope is that you will consider supporting the library even though there will be no chili cook-off this year.  Any amount you can contribute would help us to cover this shortfall.  Donations can be made online at or by mail.

Due to Covid restrictions, 2020 looked quite different for our little library.  We altered our operations and programs to accommodate requirements, while trying to keep our patrons and community involved.  As the vaccine becomes more available, we are looking towards reopening with regular hours and regular programming beginning the first of June.  We feel that by June our patrons and children will have a safe environment and can enjoy the library in person once again.  We have big plans for the children’s summer programs (SEE) in June and July with science fun, art, garden, stories, professional entertainers, snacks, and of course, popcorn Thursday.

We will be back!!!!
