In keeping with Sid W. Richardson’s vision of helping the people of his native state, the Sid Richardson Museum and Foundation embarked on a project for 2013 in which we donated over 3,000 books to 479 libraries in Texas. We’ve enjoyed reading the flood of thank you letters in return.
The institutions selected service populations of 50,000 or less. Many of these libraries are very small and often have only one staff member. For some, this was the first they had heard of the Sid Richardson Museum, so we are happy to be able to share our collection and resources with new audiences.
