Thanks to the estate of John and Ora Mae Harding, a new book trail will be installed by Baytown Parks and Recreation. This new project will bring color and wonder to the beautiful green space in front of the Sterling Municipal Library.
WHAT: New benches, signs, life-sized story time books, and a truffula tree forest.
WHY: To provide library visitors a space to enjoy a book outdoors and bring some of Dr. Seuss’s illustrations to life.
WHEN: Our teams are aiming to complete this project by December 2023.
