RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider execution of a grant contract with the Texas State Library and Archives Commission for the FY 2014 Texas Reads Grant Program.
BACKGROUND
Early in 2013, the Texas State Library and Archives Commission 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
On February 13, 2013, the Commissioners Court approved an application on behalf of the Keach Family Library for this grant opportunity in an effort to develop a more literate community. Reading promotion programs can encourage people to read and develop a lifelong love of reading.

The grant award is $3,000 and there is no match required. The grant period runs from September 1, 2013 through August 31, 2014.
