Garland is known for its strong sense of community, which always comes through during difficult times. The City of Garland’s Library staff, in partnership with local churches, businesses, nonprofits and other volunteers have been distributing bottled water since Friday.

If you need bottled water, the drive-through at Central Library, 625 Austin St., will be open Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

As of Thursday, almost 109,000 bottles have been distributed, both at the Library and delivered water to Garland apartment complexes that continue to be without water service due to winter storm damage. Many thanks to the Mayor, City Council members and countless volunteers who are pitching in to assist area residents with recovery efforts.

To receive water, go to the Central Library, 625 Austin St.. A drive-thru pickup area is in the west parking lot.

Immense gratitude to donors: Coca-Cola, Dallas County Health and Human Services, First Assembly of God Dallas, GLOWS, HTeaO, Intrinsic, Lowe's, Mesquite Service Center, North Texas Food Bank, Plastipac, Salvation Army, Texas Baptist Men, Texas Division of Emergency Management, Trusted World, Walmart and the Department of State Health and Human Services (DSHHS), as well as all the individuals and anonymous donors who dropped off their gifts at the Library, at Intrinsic and at Rosalind Coffee.
