Small Texas Library Receives Grant Thanks to City Librarain

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX - While one Corpus Christi employee was wrapping up his studies on a second master’s degree, he also helped acquire some new technology for a small-town Texas library.

Earlier this year, Managing Librarian Daniel Schwartz, with Hopkins Public Library, took a grant writing course at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi (TAMUCC). Once he completed the course, Schwartz volunteered to write a grant application for Martindale Community Library in Martindale, Texas, near Austin.

His work helped the library secure a grant for eight new laptops. The equipment will help Martindale residents research topics and get familiar with technology.

Schwartz was a recipient of a joint scholarship from the City of Corpus Christi and TAMUCC. In mid-December, he will graduate with a master’s degree in Public Administration.
