RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider execution of a grant contract with the Texas State Library and Archives Commission for the FY 2014 Impact Grant Program.
BACKGROUND
Early in 2013, the Texas State Library and Archives Commission announced the new Impact Grants for Library Innovation and Improvement program. The purpose of the grant is to encourage libraries to create or expand their programming and services in innovative ways that directly impact the lives of Texans. The grant provides seed funding for new library programming or services, or to improve existing programming and services that support best practices in the field.
DISCUSSION
On February 13, 2013, the Commissioners Court authorized a grant application on behalf of the Keach Family Library for electronic information technology. This focus area supports providing library services to enhance library patrons’ access to electronic information/materials.

The grant award totals $10,000 and there is no match required. The grant period will run from September 1, 2013 through August 31, 2014.
