The Lewisville Library is proud to participate in Read Across Texas, an initiative from the Texas State Library & Archives Commission and the Texas Center for the Book, designed to encourage communities to engage in tough but important conversations. In 2017, Read Across Texas: The Veteran Experience invites Texans to use books as a bridge to talk about veteran issues. During the month of October, the Lewisville Library will host a variety of events, including information sessions for veterans and their families, a book discussion, movie screening, and a display of veteran artwork.
