April 29, 2019Texas Book Festival 2019 Grant Recipient

Lewisville Public Library is pleased to announce it has received a $2,500 grant from the Texas Book Festival. Grant funds will be used to expand the Large Type collection with new titles and authors. Lewisville is one of 41 public libraries from across the state of Texas who received grants totaling $100,500.

The Large Type collection is a popular collection that covers all genres, including fiction and non-fiction. Large print books are created for individuals who have poor vision or visual impairments. The Library’s mission is to deliver equal access to high quality education and technology to all ages. Expanding this collection will allow these readers to have a larger selection of current titles to choose from.

Look for us out in the community this summer promoting this updated collection.

The Texas Book Festival awards annual library grants through a competitive application and review process in support of book collection enhancements, allowing public libraries to meet the unique and varied needs of their communities.
