Bread is bad for waterfowl. When the City erected a sign asking residents to refrain from doing that, Sarah Horton, with the blessing of the Parks Committee, orchestrated the installation of duck feeders. CANBE purchased the equipment, Troy Bradfield and Public Works erected them, and they have been operating successfully since July, 2022.
Money received goes to buy new feed, maintain and improve the feeders, and the surplus goes to the Nassau Bay Animal Shelter. During maintenance and filling of the feeders, quarters are emptied and turned over to the treasurer of CANBE who, in turn, cleans the quarters, counts them and rolls them before depositing them. Whether you buy feed from the feeders, or bring your own feed, CANBE encourages everyone to make sure bread is not on the menu at the park.
CANBE purchased the two weather-resistant Little Free Libraries in Nassau Bay.
The Library in the Park is managed by the Omar Abotteen Family, and the Prince William Library is managed by the Brenda and Joe Martinez.
There are approximately 150,000 Little Free Libraries in 120 countries, and we're proud to support the ones in our community.
The Abotteen family has championed the David Braun Park LFL since its inception. They make sure it is well-stocked, and there is a good mix of books, especially kids books. They also inspect the site often to check for problems. Many other residents also pitch in with new books to keep the library well-stocked.

Ashley Graves built the first Little Free Library in Nassau Bay in 2017 at her former residence on Prince William Lane, now owned by Joe and Brenda Martinez.
The first David Braun Park LFL was donated by former City Manager Jason Reynolds and his family in 2019. This beautifully hand-crafted library was replaced in 2020 with a more durable box constructed of recycled materials designed to withstand the heat and humidity of our blistering Texas summers.
