The Atascocita branch was built during 1994-96 and officially opened to the public on May 5, 1996. The library's beginnings can be traced to 1986, when the Atascocita Hi Neighbor group, led by Odell Dreyer, initiated a decade long project to have a library built in the developing Atascocita subdivision. This group of volunteers eventually became the Friends of the Atascocita Library (FOAL), a group that is currently active in providing funds for programming and materials at the branch.
Friends of the Atascocita Library (FOAL) is an extremely active volunteer group. They donate approximately $20,000 each year to the library for programming and materials. This money is raised a number of ways, with quarterly book sales, membership drives, volunteer sponsored programs (Exxon-Mobil) and sales of T-shirts and book bags. Materials that are purchased with monies from FOAL include books, magazine subscriptions, music CDs, books-on-tape as well as furniture, carpets, puppets and musical instruments for storytimes.
Information for Persons with Disabilities: Harris County Public Library will make reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities who are interested in attending library programs.
