Why Participate?

Over The Edge is an exclusive and extraordinary event that provides participants with a thrilling high-adventure urban rappelling experience! Write your own adventure story by rappelling down the beautiful Thompson San Antonio Riverwalk Hotel. Funds that are raised support the Library Foundation and our literacy programs, Born to Read and the Literacy Caravan, and San Antonio’s Libraries. YOU become the hero of the tale when you help transform lives one story at a time!

How Your Support Makes a Difference

From free books for babies and children to safe, engaging spaces for teens and lifelong learning opportunities for adults, our Library Foundation serves everyone in the community. Your support ensures that everyone in our community has the resources to learn, grow and succeed!

 The Library Foundation also supports our community through our two literacy programs, Born to Read and the Literacy Caravan. Born to Read provides a free bilingual board book to every child born in San Antonio and the surrounding area. Our Literacy Caravan is a retrofitted RV that visits schools in underserved communities throughout San Antonio, bringing fun, interactive literacy games and activities to elementary age children. Each child who visits the Literacy Caravan leaves with a snack, a book of their very own, and the key to opening a world of knowledge and exploration.

You are the hero of this epic tale; your support opens new chapters and transforms lives one story at a time!

Thank you for your support!
