The Blanco Library is a Recipient of the 2015 Texas Book Festival Grant

Texas Book Festival logo

The Texas Book Festival celebrates authors and their contributions to the culture of literacy, ideas, and imagination. Founded in 1995 by first lady Laura Bush, Mary Margaret Farabee, and a group of volunteers, the nonprofit Texas Book Festival promotes the joys of reading and writing through its annual Festival Weekend, the one-day Texas Teen Book Festival, the Reading Rock Stars [program, grants to Texas libraries, youth fiction writing contest, and year-round literacy programming. The Texas Book Festival raises money for the grants from individual, corporate, and foundation sponsorships, the annual Gala, and from book sales at the annual Festival. Every year public libraries across Texas apply to the Texas Book Festival to receive grant funds. The grants are intended to update and increase book collections.

The Blanco Library is happy to announce that we are updating our research materials for young adults.
