Reading Garden
The goals of the Reading Garden Project are as follows:
  • Beautify the land located behind the library
  • Create an area for native plants to grow
  • Provide a habitat for monarch butterflies
  • Provide an area outside for library programs and events 
  • Educate patrons about plants and butterflies
  • Provide a recreational activity for local gardeners

Contact the library if you would also like to be a donor.

This Eagle Scout Service Project was led by Chris Gordon, BSA Troop 190, through grants, donations, assistance, and volunteer work from:

  • Adult and Teen Library Volunteers

  • City of Hutto Public Works Department (donating rain barrels and leveling land)
  • Donations of free limestone rocks from a local Hutto resident Veronica Bernal
