By Marketing and Communications | 07-02-2019


Texas A&M University Libraries congratulates Librarians Stephanie Graves, Sarah LeMire and Beth German for receiving a $150,000 grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

The grant will allow the Libraries to hold a symposium to develop and facilitate a national conversation about library services for members of veteran and military communities. The project will bring together approximately 50 library workers from all types of libraries who are actively engaged in developing programming, services, collections, and spaces to serve members of the veteran and military communities. The participants will share ideas, strategies, and best practices for supporting the unique needs of veteran and military-affiliated library patrons. The symposium will culminate in the creation of an online toolkit that libraries worldwide can use to better serve their veteran and military-affiliated patrons.
