Humanities Texas Announces Grants For Hurricane-Affected Texas Libraries
Humanities Texas is pleased to announce book replacement grants for the Texas libraries recovering from Hurricane Rita.
As part of the book replacement grant program, public and school (K12) libraries may request as much as $1,500 to purchase books, media resources and other educational materials in such humanities fields as literature, history, and the study of other languages and cultures.
Because some of the grant funds have been made available through the National Endowment for the Humanities “We the People” initiative, some purchased materials must support the teaching, study and understanding of U.S. history and culture.
Applications will be accepted through July 1, 2006, or until grant funds have been exhausted. Application information is available on the Humanities Texas website: http://www.humanitiestexas.org/grants/bookreplacement.htm
The state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities, Humanities Texas has sponsored diverse programs across the state for more than three decades.
