$55 for 55, help Westover Hills Library turn green

Help our library develop a rain garden.

The Westover Hills Library is turning 55 and to celebrate, the Westover Hills Library Advisory Group has launched a Greenscape Project, including rain gardens and other improvements to the Library landscape.

A rain garden captures runoff water and directs it into a specially designed landscaped area or “rain garden.” In this garden there will be planted native plants that since they’re native require less attention, less water, and thrive in this climate. This garden also will allow for “teachable” moments for students and non-student visitors. Both Westover Baptist and Patrick Henry have built rain gardens over the past few years.

The plan is complete various stages as funding permits and any contribution to the Greenscape Project is welcome.

Contributors of $55 or more will be publicly acknowledged at the Library. Checks may be payable to Westover Hills Library Advisory Group, a 501(c)3 organization. Include “rain garden” on the memo line and send to:
Nancy Buck, Librarian/Community Services Manager Westover Hills Library
1408 Westover Hills Boulevard
Richmond, VA 23225

Contributions to the project have already been provided or pledged by the Richmond Public Library, the Westover Hills Library Advisory Group, Fourth District City Council Representative Kathy Graziano, the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, the Reedy Creek Coalition, and Four Winds Design, LC. We look forward to receiving additional contributions and support from organizations and individuals in the community.
