The generous donation was made by John Perry, Professor of Communication Arts at the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio. Perry used the collection for research while writing a book on Texas.
Some titles include “The Portable Handbook of Texas,” “The Alamo and the Texas War for Independence” by Albert A. Nofi, “Lone Star Justice,” “The First Century of the Texas Rangers” by Robert M. Utley, “Kings of Texas,” “The 150-Year Saga of an American Ranching Empire” by Don Graham, “Lone Star Nation” by H. W. Brands, “Oil in Texas, the Gusher Age 1895-1945” by Diana and Roger Olien.
The majority of the literature has been added to our circulating non-fiction collection and is available for checkout immediately while many of the titles have been added to our Texas History Room collection.
The Goliad County Library is open Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Texas History Room may be visited from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
The library is seeking clean, empty, 20-ounce green plastic bottles for a summer craft project.
