Library Awarded $4000 Grant from Texas New Mexico Power Company

The TNMP Fund in spring 2015 introduced TNMP Power Grants to invest in its communities. The fund sought innovative and creative proposals that support the communities TNMP serves.

For the 2016 grants, more than 50 qualified 501(c)3 nonprofits, municipalities and school districts applied for grants up to $5,000 each. A total of $50,000 in funding was available.

Funding priorities included: community safety, economic development, education, and environment.  The 2016 grants were awarded in eleven Texas communities.  Our library was among the grantees.

Library Director, Lewis Stansell, announced the funds were used to add to the library's children's collection, as follows.

  • Easy books for our youngest readers - 64
  • Juvenile fiction for pre-teens and teens - 105
  • Juvenile non-fiction for pre-teens and teens - 50
  • Audio books - 34

Both library staff and our young patrons express our appreciation for this generous gift.
