We were awarded a $2,500 Texas Book Festival grant to purchase audio books for our young adults, juniors, and children. Audio books have been shown to help reluctant readers and further literacy skills in children.
The Hondo Public Library was chosen as one of six libraries serving populations less than 25,000 to participate in a pilot grant program, Library Technology Academy, by the Texas State Libraries and Archives Commission. This grant gave up to $1000 for travel and training and will provide $10,000 for a technology project at the conclusion of the online training. Our planned project is to add a cart with laptop for mobile training. These will be used for computer classes, our CyberSecurity and CyberGen groups, and a planned Coding class.
The Hondo Public Library was the only entity located outside Bexar County to receive a grant through the San Antonio Area Foundation. The $125,000 John L. Santikos grant funded books, puzzles, games, and manipulatives for six learning stations as well as two 3D printers and a drone for the new building in 2017. All these items provide additional learning methods and opportunities for our patrons.
