2014 December 17

Texas Book Festival logoApplications are now being accepted from public libraries for the latest round of  Texas Book Festival (TBF) grants! Applications submitted for the 2014-2015 cycle must be postmarked no later than February 4, 2015, and the focus this year will be on collection enhancement grant applications only.

Since the Texas Book Festival‘s (TBF) founding in 1995, it has been a part of their mission to promote Texas libraries and literacy. Each year, funds raised at the annual Texas Book Festival support grants that are distributed the following year. The organization has donated more than $2.6 million to libraries across Texas.

Collection Enhancement Grants support libraries in replacing worn books and adding new books to the collection. They serve to upgrade or increase book collections, e-books, books on CD, and special collections in support of community needs. Collection Enhancement Grants are funded up to $2,500. Requests for e-content will be awarded up to $1,500. Only one application per library site (i.e., branch or building) is permitted. A library system with multiple branches may submit up to four grants.

Visit http://www.texasbookfestival.org/library-grants/ for all the details, requirements, and application forms.

If you have questions about the grants or the application process contact Kendall Miller, Logistics & Outreach Coordinator for the TBF, at kendall@texasbookfestival.org or 512-477-3295.
