This year the Texas Book Festival was able to offer collections enhancement funding to forty-one public libraries across 36 Texas counties—an amount totaling $100,500.

“The Texas Book Festival believes in the power of libraries to educate, enrich, and delight individuals in their communities,” says Lois Kim, executive director of the Texas Book Festival. “Our goal through our library grants is to improve free, year-round access to high quality books for Texans across the state.”

"The 2019 grants target a mix of needs in communities across the state. Several libraries will use their 2019 Texas Book Festival grant will expand their collection of Spanish and bilingual books—such as the Brookshire Pattison Library in Waller County, which requested Spanish-language books for all ages to meet a demand for new books in Spanish as parents are inspired by their kids’ love of reading."
