Saginaw, Texas, Beautification Project Springs Surprise on Saginaw, Library

Library Assistant Allie Butler as the Easter Bunny on Wednesday, April 20, 2011 for the library’s morning Children’s Storytime.

On Thursday April 14th, the Saginaw Beautification Committee beautified the landscaping in front of the John Ed Keeter Public Library located at 355 W. McLeroy Blvd. For the past three years library staff would visit nursery and garden centers to purchase the flowers and then volunteer their time to plant the new items in the flowerbed in front of the library.  Now vibrant shades of orange, pink, yellow, and purple perennial flowers line the sidewalk at the entrance of the library this year thanks to the Saginaw Beautification Committee who hired a landscaper to plant the flowers in the flowerbed. In spring, library patrons will see the Elfin Gold Coreopsis, Blue Hill Salvia, Arizona Sun Blanket Flower, and Firewitch Dianthus bloom. When summer arrives, the Snow Hill Salvia and Homestead Purple Verbena will begin to blossom and continue to provide color throughout the fall season. Since all of the flowers are perennials, they will return to bloom each year.


The Saginaw Beautification Committee’s past projects included the Gazebo in Willow Creek Park, a “Welcome to Saginaw” marker on South Saginaw Boulevard, landscaping in Kiwanis Park, and landscaping at the Police and Fire complex.  Current members include: Chairperson Melody Leak, who is also the Circulation Manager and Reference Librarian in Saginaw; Treasurer Karen Cromwell; Secretary Pat Friar; member Cindy Sulsar; member Patty Lattin; member Sheryl Warren; and City Liaison Dolph Johnson.
