Supporting public libraries all across rural Texas
Strong libraries build strong communities
The Tocker Foundation is dedicated to the support of rural libraries of Texas. Our grant-making focuses on inviting, open patron spaces, community connectivity, effective use of technology, digitization of public records as an extension of services, and a robust community resource with programming and accessibility for patrons of all ages. We encourage the evolution of libraries in the digital age by helping those in rural parts of the state to respond to the rapid pace of change. We look forward to serving in this direction for many years.

Beyond BooksRural Libraries offer programs and services which enable smaller communities to grow.
Our measure of success is not about how many books are circulated or how many people attend our programs, but by the quality of life in our communities.
