Sex education has become a polarizing topic, and public education has often not had comprehensive sex ed for even traditional sexualities and genders. LGBTQ inclusive sex ed is even more rare.

Seed libraries at Harris County Public Library allow the public to borrow seeds for free to grow their own fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers. Once grown, users can harvest seeds from their plants and donate them back to the library. HCPL also has digital and physical resources to learn about gardening or harvesting and even loans out tools.
In partnership with the community, the library has built a small-scale model of the ISS. The model is made of 3D-printed parts, motors, and mini-computers like Raspberry Pi.
