A big thank you to the Kingwood Garden Club for the outdoor trash receptacle as the President’s gift through Sandy Sexton, the immediate past president! There should be no excuses now for any littering along the walkways to the library. The beautiful planter to the right of the library entrance and visible from the meeting room was also a gift from them. The Kingwood Garden Club continues to enhance the Kingwood community and the library benefits from their mission which is to “…stimulate interest in floral design and horticulture; to cultivate a broader knowledge of gardens and gardening; to aid in the protection of native trees, plants, and wildlife; and to encourage civic interest in an appreciation for the work and growth of garden clubs.” We so appreciate their dedication to this mission!
Through the years the garden club has taken a very active role in the beautification of Kingwood, from schools to public spaces. The library has been honored to be on the receiving end of their expertise and funding as we have been taken on as a major project. When the new building opened the types of gardens changed as we are now focusing on native plants that can live and flourish with the changing Texas weather. An example of their guidance is apparent in the rain garden that was put in this weekend by Jr. Girl Scout Troop 9295; a garden club representative worked with the troop in planning the garden and then was on hand when the garden was put in this past weekend. Thanks to all involved!
