The Texas Book Festival awards grants to support collection enhancement for Texas public libraries. This funding enables libraries to share the diversity and breadth of literature with their entire communities.
The Southmost Public Library Branch was awarded $2,500 to expand a New Easy Spanish eBook collection for the youth of our serving community.
The collection will increase the growth of literacy and engagement of the community and will encourage our patrons to utilize the resources provided by the library. The collection will also provide our patrons enjoyable and educational content that will engage them to learn and make literacy exciting.
