Lone Star Día is the Texas celebration of Children’s Day, Book Day, El día de los niños, El día de los libros, and the funds are intended to encourage libraries to host Día celebrations in April 2018.
Grants will be awarded as a $200 credit to libraries to use as payment towards books they select from the First Book Marketplace, which offers a wide array of diverse titles for children. The grants are made possible by the generosity of the Edouard Foundation and the Friends of Libraries & Archives of Texas. Grants will be made on a first come, first serve basis.
