Thank you Harris County Commissioner’s Court for approving the budget proposal for funding of renovation and expansion of the Atascocita Branch Library! We’re a giant step closer to getting an additional meeting room to serve our community even better. Thanks to our community for supporting us.

Atascocita Library Expansion

In the next few weeks Harris County Commissioners Court will vote on the 2020-2021 Harris County budget, which includes $1,000,000 to add meeting rooms to the Atascocita Library. The members of Commissioners Court need to know our community needs and wants this addition to the Atascocita Library, which serves multi purposes since there is no community center. More space is needed for elections, community meetings, and library programs. 

In 2021 the Atascocita Library will celebrate 25 years and the Harris County Public Library System will celebrate 100 years. There will be a great celebration of libraries and community, and I hope the completion of renovations to our library will be included.

Please print, sign, and mail the letters addressed to Precinct 2 Commissioner Adrian Garcia and County Judge Lina Hidalgo, urging them to vote Yes to funding the renovations for the Atascocita Library in the 2020-2021 budget year.

 Together we can do this!

Becky Berry
President, Friends of the Atascocita Library

UPDATE: The letters previously attached have been removed as the budget process for the county has moved to its next phase. We appreciate all the support from the community!
