Round Top Festival Institute's Bybee Library Fundraiser

In this time of a relentless pandemic when we must cover our faces and distance ourselves from one another for the sake of each other's health and safety, it is not practical for us to meet in person. However, we are not deterred. Instead, we are committed to find other ways to celebrate and carry on our mission.

The 2021 Bybee Library Fundraiser will be like no other. There will be no live benefit silent tables laid out with sweet treats and yummies galore. Nonetheless! We have a great program lined up for you!
  • Happy faces and beautiful voices in concert...a free Valentine Concert for you to enjoy again and again. Will Lynde and Arden McKenna return (virtually) to sing songs of the heart. Song list. (YouTube link goes live at ?:00 pm Saturday.)
  • An online Adopt-A-Book program with books to adopt through a special donation program
  • A 72-hour online Library Giving Campaign in support of the Bybee Library. (Campaign launches at ?:00 pm Saturday, February 13 and ends at ?:00 pm on the following Tuesday.)
  • An opportunity to win one of two $200 HEB gift cards. All donors who give during the 72-hour Library Giving Campaign will be entered in the drawing, including donors who adopt a book. (Winners will be contacted by email and will be announced on the website Tuesday afternoon followed by an announcement in an email blast. Gift card will be mailed.)
This event is sponsored in part by HEB.
