Library wins Wildflower Grant

The Round Rock Public Library received a grant from the #PlantWildflowers Campaign to help our community support the native pollinators in our area.

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

The library received 2000 packets of native wildflower seeds, $1000 for books and programming, and a copy of the movie My Garden of a Thousand Bees.

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.

Even so, the library held a soft rollout of the educational programs through the Parks and Recreation Department Pop-Up Play Day programs.

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.

Highlights include:

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!
