Grant awarded to University Libraries

By Marketing and Communications | 09-10-2021

The Texas A&M University Libraries are proud to host the virtual Libraries and Veterans National Forum, which will take place from September 13th through September 24th, 2021.

The Libraries and Veterans National Forum is led by librarians Sarah LeMire, Stephanie Graves, and Beth German and is funded by a $150,000 grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

The grant will allow the Libraries to hold a virtual symposium to develop and facilitate a national conversation about library services for members of veteran and military-affiliated communities. The Libraries and Veterans National Forum will take place from September 13th through September 24th, 2021. The project will bring together 250 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. Microgrants will also be available to provide funding to libraries for eligible projects that support library services and programming for veterans, service members, and military families.
