Dear Literacy Fan,

Please help a worthy, literacy-based organization receive $2,000. The short nomination form is due by Sept. 1.

The winning organization receives a $2,000 cash award to assist in its future work promoting reading and combating illiteracy. Additionally, an honorable mention recipient will receive $500. The Literacy Award is formally presented during the Annual Texas Authors Celebration that kicks off the Texas Book Festival in the fall.

Nonprofit organizations whose primary purpose is to support and encourage literacy are eligible. Anyone may submit a nomination, and eligible organizations are encouraged to self-nominate. This award is made possible by the Friends of Libraries & Archives of Texas and was inspired by the Library of Congress Literacy Awards. The winner will receive the Texas Center for the Book’s nomination for the 2020 Library of Congress State Literacy Award.

While this award promotes partnerships with libraries, please note that library friends organizations, public libraries, school and academic libraries, and other library entities are not eligible for nomination. However, these entities are encouraged to nominate literacy organizations within their local and/or regional communities.

By Sept. 1, please nominate here: https://www.tsl.texas.gov/literacyaward

Thank you for your time,


Rebekah Manley, MFA

Coordinator | Texas Center for the Book
