Help Melissa Public Library Bring Comfort to Harvey Evacuees

Looking for ways you can help the Harvey relief efforts here at home?

The Melissa Public Library is partnering with UT Arlington and other regional libraries to help our neighbors impacted by Hurricane Harvey by sponsoring a drive to collect books and board/card games to give to those displaced who are currently residing in shelters. We invite community members to drop off new and gently used books for all age groups and new and gently used board/card games at the Melissa Public Library through Sept. 18th.


Blankets for Harvey Relief_2Additionally they will be holding two special "no sew" blanket events to help make blankets for those displaced due to Harvey:

  • THIS Saturday, Sept. 9th, 1 -3 PM and
  • Saturday, Sept. 16th, 1-3 PM 

Come help make blankets for children & pets staying in area shelters. Fabric donations are needed as well. We need clean fleece materials, sizes from 24“ x 24” or larger. There are fabric stores providing discounts for purchasing fleece for this project. 

Register with librarian@cityofmelissa.com to participate.
