Have you heard? Texas Book Festival provides collection enhancement grants to public libraries in support of their efforts to better serve their communities big or small across Texas. The 2021 grant cycle is now open and applications are due on Saturday, May 15. If you would like to submit an application but have questions, we will be hosting a grant information session at the TLA Annual Conference on Thursday, April 22 at 1:45 p.m. CT. This virtual meeting will walk you through the grant application process and give you information about the review timeline. Don’t forget to stop by with your questions!
In 2020, TBF awarded grants to 42 libraries across the state, a total of $100,000! This year, the application review will again be completed virtually with folks from TLA during early summer. Grant recipients will be notified by Sunday, August 1. Don’t miss this great opportunity for your library!
