Library Grants

About Our Library Grants

Through our philanthropic efforts, the board members have seen inroads made towards library automation, reference volumes reduced to online subscriptions, increases in computer accessibility and general expansion of services. Past grants have supported outreach and “shut-in” programs, adult reading classes, after school projects, bilingual material and many other projects initiated by the community’s patrons. Grant applications are evaluated twice a year by a permanent, appointed committee of the Texas Library Association. The board of directors makes all final decisions.

My books are very few, but then the world is before me – a library open to all – from which poverty of purse cannot exclude me – in which the meanest and most paltry volume is sure to furnish something to amuse, if not to instruct and improve.”

Joseph Howe, 1824
