The Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC) recently awarded funding to the Converse Public Library under its Special Projects Grant program. This grant provides funds for programs that expand library services to include all members of the library's community. It enables libraries to develop programs for populations with special needs or those having difficulty using the library. 

Our Special Project is a Book Mobile named "CoCo" (Converse Connects).  This customized conversion van book mobile will allow us to bring the library out into the community.  Not only will CoCo be stocked with the traditional books and movies, but we will be bringing WiFi service and the use of laptops to each of our stops.  We envision stopping at senior centers, daycares, apartments, neighborhoods, the parks.....you can bet we will be coming close to you.  This is just the tip of the iceberg.  Plans have just started, stay tuned for updates, photos, and info as we move forward on this big project!
WE ARE BEYOND EXCITED!  Thank you to IMLS and TSLAC for this phenomenal opportunity....we will be "leaking" developments and plans, stay tuned....
This project is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services ( Grant# LS‐249990-OLS-21) to the Texas State Library and Archives Commission under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act. (2021)

HOW SOON CAN I START?

Once we receive your paperwork, a background check will be run and as soon that is complete, we will contact you to schedule your training. You can anticipate an approximate lag time of one week for paper processing.

 IS THERE AN AGE REQUIRED TO VOLUNTEER?

Yes, sixteen is the minimum age for volunteers.  Any volunteer under the age of 18 must have the written permission of a parent/guardian on the form above.  Note that the parent/guardian must sign the form in the presence of a library staff member.

WHAT WOULD I DO AT THE LIBRARY?

If you are available weekly at a consistent time, it could be shelving materials or helping at a repeating program such as Storytime or the LEGO Club.  We also need volunteers to help us with special programming.  Doing prep work for programs or displays is a great need, and that might consist of cutting out or assembling materials, or pulling a book list.  Maybe you have great writing skills and would like to come in and write up some book reviews!
