From the Houston Chronicle:

On Thursday, the Texas Library Association awarded $102,600 in 25 grants, from sums of $2,500 to $15,000. Half of the recipients organizations are in the Houston area. Later in the day, the Texas State Library and Archives Commission announced $194,242 in grants, also to 25 organizations. Those awards ranged from $5,000 to $25,000.

Both organizations collaborated in the days after the late-August storm to assess damage to libraries and coordinate assistance. The grant money came from disaster relief funds initiated to restore library services in impacted areas.

The grants will be used for everything from small pop-up libraries to high school and community college media centers.
