Custom-designed copies of Peter Pan and The Secret Garden to be available at local libraries.

The Crossvine's custom-designed copies of The Secret Garden and Peter Pan.

This project began as an amenity for residents of The Crossvine, but as the project progressed, we wanted to extend the service to the surrounding community.

The Crossvine is proud to announce that the mixed-use, master-planned community will donate custom-designed copies of Peter Pan and The Secret Garden to libraries and schools in the Schertz area. Starting Wednesday, November 18, copies of the books will be available at the JBSA-Randolph Air Force Base Library, the Schertz Library, Rose Garden Elementary School, Ray D. Corbett Junior High School, Barbara C. Jordan Intermediate School, and Samuel Clements High School.

The donations will kick off at Randolph Air Force Base where Chris Price, developer of The Crossvine and President of Price Companies, will be on hand to deliver 200 complimentary copies of each book. These books are available for free to service members and their families.

Schertz Library and all Schertz public schools will receive several hard back copies of each book which will become part of their permanent lending inventory.

These books are an extension of a plan for permanent, free-standing “lending-library” boxes that will be installed throughout The Crossvine community. The Crossvine designed and printed custom covers for Peter Pan and The Secret Garden for these lending libraries and the book donation idea grew from there.

“This project began as an amenity for residents of The Crossvine, to kick start engagement with the lending libraries within the neighborhood; but as the project progressed, we wanted to extend the service to the surrounding community,” Price said. “The Crossvine is committed to fostering a sense of community and connectivity within The Crossvine, and between the neighborhood and the city of Schertz, and this donation is a part of that commitment to advance Schertz and the people who live in the area.”

Since breaking ground in 2013, The Crossvine has become an important part of the Schertz landscape, and has steadily cultivated a reputation for investing in the nearby community through the development of forward thinking infrastructure like an outdoor exercise area, pocket parks, and an amphitheater. The developers of The Crossvine set out to attract and build a strong community-driven culture for the community, and now that the project is coming into its own, they have been implementing some of the stated community engagement goals – such as the creation of the lending libraries. The plan is to create and maintain additional customized lending libraries that will be installed near mail kiosks and pocket parks in future phases of The Crossvine.

The book giveaway is the first of several planned initiatives to further cultivate long-lasting, valuable interaction between The Crossvine and the surrounding area. To learn more about The Crossvine, visit their website:

Located in Schertz, Texas, just northeast of San Antonio, The Crossvine is a 540+ acre mixed-use, master-planned community. The Crossvine is envisioned as a vibrant, diverse neighborhood appealing to people in various stages of life: professionals, young families, empty-nesters and retirees. Residential development at The Crossvine will include traditional single-family homes, garden homes, townhomes, multi-family clusters, and independent and assisted living facilities, alongside commercial areas comprised of neighborhood services, retail, municipal, and potential medical uses. The project’s developer has worked closely with the City of Schertz to create a community that fits in with the area’s rural setting while responding to its need for responsible growth.
