RECOMMENDATION
Ratify the submission of a grant application to the Texas State Library and Archives Commission for the FY2020 Texas Reads Grant Program.
BACKGROUND
The Texas State Library and Archives Commission has announced the new Texas Reads Grant Program. The purpose of the grant is to fund public library programs that promote reading and literacy within local communities. Programs may be targeted to the entire community or to a segment of the community.
DISCUSSION
The Keach Family Library has applied for this grant opportunity in an effort to initiate sensory backpacks (Young Learners of the Heart) in Pop Pop’s Place in Robstown. This project will provide an all-in-one take home kit for families that are designed to help children build life skills, social skills and reading comprehension.

The grant application will total roughly $5,000.00 and there is no match required. The application was due on March 8th, 2019.
