Help beautify your neighborhood this summer, starting at your local library.

The Fort Worth Public Library is teaming up with Texas Blossoms to plant trees around the city’s libraries. Texas Blossoms is a Fort Worth nonprofit whose mission is to beautify Texas with blossoming trees, native flowers and butterfly habitats.

Library patrons and neighbors are encouraged to visit their local library branch for more information on how to participate.
