Foundation / Corporation
Texas Library Association
Grants to Texas public libraries that serve small communities to purchase books, audiobooks, and ebooks. Funding is intended to assist libraries that have received support and promotion from their communities, including local governments. The selection committee also considers the library’s support of the community and the library’s need for additional book resources.
Funds used to obtain ebooks may be spent for licensing access to ebooks, though the committee encourages purchasing rather than licensing when feasible. The committee recognizes that many small libraries obtain ebooks through consortia that may provide other services as well. Funds spent on ebooks may include payment for services directly in support of accessing the ebooks, such as platform preparation, but may not be spent for services unrelated to obtaining access to ebooks.
GrantWatch ID#: 140808
The selection committee determines the number of awards each year.
The total amount available for awards each year is determined by the net income of the trust. In 2019, a total of almost $50,000 was distributed to five libraries.
The committee intends that the funds be spent within one calendar year of receipt.
