The Live Oak County Library in George West was recently awarded brand new non-fiction books that relate to Texas and its history. These books value at $500 and are Texas A&M University Press Consortium publications ranging in titles from “Living Waters of Texas” to “Sacrificed At The Alamo”. These books come as a gift from the Collection Enhancement Program of the Tocker Foundation.

In a letter sent to the library, Texas A&M University Press Director Charles Backus stated: “The staff of Texas A&M University Press joins the Tocker Foundation in appreciation of your efforts in making books and other knowledge resources available to your community.”

The Libraries also received a donation of art books from the Art Resources Transfer, Inc.’s DUC Library Program. These books were given to the Three Rivers Library free of charge through the program with the intention, stated by DUC program manager Judith M. Smith in a letter to the library, to “help…build a strong contemporary art collection that your patrons or students will enjoy for years to come.” Ten books were received through the program ranging from artists like Phil Collins to subjects including Hurricane Katrina.

The books donated to the Live Oak County Libraries can be viewed in-library or by typing ”A&M University Press” or “DUC Program” at the library’s online catalog at For more library information, search ‘Live Oak County Libraries’ on Facebook.
