RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider the acceptance of a grant award from the Ladd and Katherine Hancher Library Foundation for the Bishop Branch Library.
BACKGROUND
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.
DISCUSSION
On September 16, 2015, the Commissioners Court accepted a grant award from the Hancher Library Foundation. This grant award paid for specialized workstations and a complete educational computer for children ages 2-8 at the Keach Family Library. The grant award totaled $27,800 and there was no match required.

The Hancher Library Foundation has now offered a $20,000 grant award for collection development for the newly expanded Bishop Branch Library. The library currently does not offer audiobooks or DVDs so this grant will allow for the purchase of not only just new books, but audiobooks and DVDs as well. A check was made payable to the Bishop Branch Library and the County Auditor has set up Department #2147 for this grant.
