Celebrate National Public Lands Day at Mission Branch Library

Celebrate National Public Lands Day, Saturday, September 24, with Texas Public Radio, San Antonio Water System, SACU (San Antonio Federal Credit Union), the San Antonio Parks & Recreation Department, and the San Antonio Public Library! Presentations and crafts will be offered. To support the water catchment system at the Mission Branch Library, volunteers will spend the morning installing hardscape elements on the Library grounds. The new installation will allow rain or overflow from the catchment system to be collected and channeled to irrigate other areas of the landscaping.

“Twenty-first century literacy means more than just books. People need information on a variety of topics, from conservation to personal health to job searches," said Ramos. "Libraries provide resources to address these issues, and this water conservation project is just one example of what the San Antonio Public Library has to offer.”
