Outdoor tables at the Maze Branch Library

Maze Branch outdoor seating & Community Sensory Garden

Bring a book or your lunch to the south side of Maze Branch, where we have four new picnic tables with umbrellas (pictured above), first-come, first-serve.

Maze Branch also is home to the Community Sensory Garden, where flowers, ornamental plants, and herbs are grown for the community to enjoy and harvest. Disabled youth plant and tend the garden in classes held all summer long.
