Earth Day

Celebrate Earth Day and Space!

  Earth Day and Space - 2 awesome and informative displays await you on your next visit to the Library!  On the first round shelf area you will find books and information on Space, planets and NASA's latest projects.  In the alcove area directly after that, you will find the Earth Day display.  Earth day is an annual initiative which began in 1970 to bring awareness and demonstrate support for environmental protection. Today, it is recognized with events held worldwide in over 193 countries!  Learn about it, get information on ways you can protect the Earth and check out some books.

As part of a committment by the staff of the library to a "year of giving", each month a worthy cause is chosen to contribute to.  This month, and in conjunction with Earth Day, the library has chosen the Tomball Community Center.  We are asking for donations of clean and dry plastic grocery bags which will be woven into sleeping mats for the homeless.  A large green box is located near the base of the display for the collection of these bags.  Thank you in advance for helping us to recycle and give back to our community!

Water-wise Planting

Happy Earth Day, everyone! If you live in the Tomball area, you probably know a heartbreaking scene of dried out trees with the bark falling off them, the carnage of our terrible drought two summers ago. Since I hear rumors of another dry summer this summer, I'm sending you a link to some of our books on water-wise gardening. Spending another summer watching our beloved gardens wither up and die would be too much. We have some lovely solutions for creating beauty in dry Texas summers.

Bird Haven for Earth Day

One of my New Year’s resolutions is to identify and appreciate the simple things in life.  A few weeks ago, I was reading in my study, when I noticed that the songbirds are back.  I am delighted they have returned to my garden, and realized how much I truly missed them during the cold "winter" months.  As our community grows birds are losing their natural habitat. Therefore, I have begun making plans to create a backyard haven for birds and butterflies. Below are a few of the books that I found helpful.
