Commissioners Court - Regular
Hancher Library Foundation Grant Award
Maria Medrano, Grants Department
Discuss and consider the acceptance of a grant award from the Ladd and Katherine Hancher Library Foundation for the Keach Family Library.
The Ladd and Katherine Hancher Library Foundation will consider grant requests from Public Libraries serving populations of 50,000 or less. Projects are reviewed for the level of educational contribution to the community. Grants can range from $2,000.00 to $40,000.00.
On June 24, 2015, the Commissioners Court ratified the submission of a grant application to the Hancher Library Foundation. The Keach Family Library proposed an early literacy project that will offer an opportunity for children to interact on fun and educational programs focused on a variety of multi-curricular areas. The grant request includes the purchase of specialized workstations, a complete educational computer for children ages 2-8. It is the premier all-in-one computer solution for young children in public libraries. It requires near-zero technical support.
The grant award totals $27,800 and there is no match required. A check was made payable to the Keach Family Library and the County Auditor has set up Department #2157 for this grant.
