Round Rock New Neighbors is a social organization of women welcoming women in the Round Rock area since 1978. Both "new" and "old" neighbors are welcome. For more information: [Barnes & Noble requires that RRNN's book club be open to the public, so you do not need to be an RRNN member to attend book club, and both men and women are welcome and do attend. ]

Literary Events

The Friends of the Georgetown Public Library’s Hill Country Authors Series events will be listed here.


Amazon Prime Video has released a series based on stories by Philip K. Dick. It's called Electric Dreams.
Click here to see the trailer for Stephen Spielberg's Ready Player One, currently scheduled to debut March 30th. Look for the DeLorean. (Hint-it's moving quickly and is black and you're more likely to find it if you watch one of the explanatory videos that elaborates on the trailer.) If you want to, stay on the YouTube page and see lots more about Ready Player One. After all, it's a movie about the native online generation.

Proposed Budget Cuts Endanger Public Libraries in Texas

With the creation of the first draft of the state budget, they are threatening to cut the state funds to the libraries...again. The Round Rock Library has posted requests that we lobby and write to our elected representatives. The link above to the Texas Library Association website will help you send some emails to your representatives very quickly. I ended up with another window, which gave me a letter to send to the Lt. Governor via paper mail. It really is quick and easy! You do have to put in your name and address, but it's not going to endanger you online. I do tend to give one of my "extra" email addresses to these political cause websites, because they sometimes start sending requests for more of me than I want to give.
