Eligible EntitiesThrough their governing authority, accredited public libraries, local public library systems, libraries that are members of the TexShare Library Consortium, or nonprofit organizations that are applying on behalf of accredited libraries and/or TexShare members, are eligible to apply for funds. An applicant that is a nonprofit organization is eligible only if the organization’s organizational charter, operating guidelines, or mission statement includes providing direct support for affiliated library activities and goals as a defined objective. Public library applicants must be accredited by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission for the fiscal year in which the grant contracts are issued.
Focus AreaThis grant program provides funds for programs that expand library services to include all members of the library’s community. It enables libraries to develop programs for populations with special needs or those having difficulty using the library. Programs focusing on community engagement or involving collaboration with other community organizations are strongly encouraged. Programs must emphasize improved services by the library to its customers. Goals: 1) Through Texas libraries, Texans will have access to digital resources and services needed to help them navigate the digital information landscape successfully; 2) Texans will have access to library materials and services that support literacy and educational attainment, especially early childhood and family literacy, workforce readiness, and lifelong learning; and 3) Texans will receive library services from trained library staff that effectively respond to community needs.
