Outreach services from the UT Health Science Center at San Antonio Libraries provided an exhibit promoting resources from the National Library of Medicine (NLM) at the 2nd Annual Duval County Literacy Festival held on August 19th in the Civic Center in San Diego, TX. The festival is attended by area children, parents, grandparents, and representatives from community agencies. It is sponsored by the Duval County Public Library, the Duval County Judges’ Office, and the South Texas Literacy Coalition. The Texas Literacy Coalition, created by U.S. Congressman Rubén Hinojosa, brings together community leaders in South Texas to promote literacy.
