Redlining was a discriminatory practice that denied access to housing and insurance loans to black families living in Settegast. This practice was prevalent in the 20th century and contributed to the creation of segregated neighborhoods. Many Black families were often forced to live in substandard housing and were denied opportunities for upward mobility. The effects of redlining can still be seen today in the form of racial disparities in homeownership and wealth.

  • The Bookworm Bus is a state-of-the-art mobile library with a grassroots approach to visiting communities throughout Waller and surrounding counties. Barriers created by poverty, limited opportunities, limited English, and lack of transportation are alleviated by taking library programs, resources, and services directly to neighborhoods and schools. Committed to delivering books, fun, and fellowship, our routes travel the rural farm roads of Brookshire, Pattison, and Hempstead, Texas, and beyond. We continue to develop reading programs, storytime and reading scavenger hunts, and creative activities for all reading levels. The bus is a beacon of hope in building tomorrow’s readers.
