Library wins wildflower grant
The library will provide this support though educational programming–and also the planting of tiny wildflower meadows.
Of the 327 libraries that applied, RRPL was one of 50 grant recipients, and the only one in Texas.
We are excited that our grant programming will align so beautifully alongside Round Rock’s Bee City, USA initiative.
Sharing seeds for #OneSquareFoot meadows
Visit the Children’s Reference Desk to pick up your seed packet.
You’ll have just enough seeds for a #OneSquareFoot meadow. You might plant them in a pot, in garden, or in an open space.
Fun and informative programming for all ages
Most of the Library’s educational efforts will be focused on the fall planting season.
The Youth Services department began #PlantWildflowers programs at the end of July with a PreK Playtime themed around butterflies, and a tween LEGO(R) Robotics session that featured a pollinating robot.
Watch the online calendar in August, September, and October for events for all ages.
- a Laura Freeman concert for kids
- more pollinator-friendly PreK Playtimes
- a screening of My Garden of a Thousand Bees
- a bioblitz Citizen Science event for all ages
Books! Books! Books!
The grant also provided funding for books.
RRPL librarians selected books just right for our community. The books began arriving in early August.
