The Texas Book Festival awards grants to public libraries annually to support collection enhancement. The Festival has donated more than $2.8 million to libraries across Texas since its founding in 1995. Proceeds from the Festival help fund the Texas Book Festival Library Grants. Library Grant applications open in late November after the Festival.
