The Library will provide support through educational programming and planting 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 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, which contains enough seeds for a #OneSquareFoot meadow.
Fun and informative programming for all ages
The Library’s educational efforts will focus on the fall planting season.
The Youth Services department began #PlantWildflowers programs at the end of July with a Pre-K Playtime themed around butterflies, and a tween LEGO(R) Robotics session that featured a pollinating robot.
View the online calendar for the upcoming fall events. All ages are welcome.
- Two performances by Laura Freeman (for all ages)
- Additional pollinator-friendly Pre-K Playtimes
- Access to the film My Garden of a Thousand Bees
- Texas Pollinator BioBlitz Citizen Science event (for all ages)
- Self-directed learning with resources, project ideas, displays, bibliographies, and more.
Books! Books! Books!
The grant also provided funding for books.
The librarians have been working hard to find the perfect books for our community. The first batch arrived early this month, and we are so excited for you to check them out!
