Summer Reading is an Ocean of Possibilities!

Summer Reading is in full swing, and we’re so excited to have programs back in the library. From teens in Box Wars to learning the history of the USS Houston, and on to rehabilitating sea turtles, this summer reading is an Ocean of Possibilities!

Construction on the library continues: an adjustment to the sign, adding windows and doors, and the outside will be complete. The inside still has a lot of work to do, but the team navigating this process, as well as the work crew, are determined to keep moving ahead even as the Texas heat makes an impact on tasks to be done.

The project to furnish the inside has begun. We’re gathering lists of furnishings to meet the needs of the A/V Lab and the meeting room. Be sure to check this space for how you can help support FOAL to bring tables, chairs, and equipment for these much needed community spaces. Thank you to all who have already generously donated to FOAL for this project.

Please note that the library will close early on July 1, open 1pm-5pm, and closed July 2-4 for the holiday. Have a safe and happy 4th of July!


25th Anniversary Celebration

After years of fundraising and many months of construction, the Atascocita Branch Library was ready to serve the community in May 1996! It’s been 25 years of being part of this growing community, and we’re ready to celebrate. Starting May 3, the library will have a series of special crafts, giveaways, and more to pick up during curbside! Don’t miss out on special online programs, so check out the branch’s social media pages and Events Calendar. May 1 will present Atascocita Branch Library’s 25th Anniversary podcast, including interviews with first branch manager, Linda Stevens and current FOAL President, Becky Berry.
