Celebrating our community

We love to celebrate talent in our community and gather to share our love of reading and learning!

Annual Book Sale

in conjunction with Budafest

A book lover’s dream come true! Shop a wide variety of gently used books for incredibly low prices. All proceeds benefit the library.

Short Story Contest

We know you have stories to tell and we want to read them! Each spring our short story contest for adults is open to nonprofessional writers aged 17+.

Young Writers

Each summer the Young Writers Contest is an opportunity for kids to flex their writing muscles and show off their imaginations and literary skills. The contest is open to kids ages 8-17 in two divisions. The contest is sponsored by the Friends in partnership with the Buda Library and Hays Free Press.

Books & Beer

Is it a book club for beer drinkers or a beer club for book readers? Come and decide for yourself! Join us at Two Wheel Brewing Company for our next get together.
