A Goal - Founder's Blog

Updated: Jan 14, 2022

Hi I’m Abigail, the founder and executive director of The Traveling Library CCTX.

I founded The Traveling Library with the mission of instilling a love of literature in the Coastal Bend. I personally believe that through literacy there comes the betterment of the individual and the community. I hope to share my passion for reading with others and to ignite that spark of creativity, by fostering an environment for continual growth in reading achievements. I hope that this organization will create a proud community, ready for success.

Research shows that literacy has a direct correlation to success in adulthood. Increasing reading skills in children positively affects their financial skills and health literacy. Unfortunately, as Corpus Christi grows, our community’s literacy rate continues to decline.

The Traveling Library aims to combat these statistics. By providing access to age-appropriate books, we increase our local children's reading achievements. Each book added to a Coastal Bend families' library increases their child’s reading skills and love of reading. By supporting our communities' youth, The Traveling Library can foster an environment of success, one book at a time.

If you would like to help foster a child’s success here locally consider volunteering with us. Take a look at our “How to Help” page to see the options that would best suit you. We would also like to encourage you to help us monetarily. These donations will help us with the upkeep of our trailer, obtaining additional educational resources and maintenance fees such as the website where you are reading this blog!

Please follow us on our social media pages to keep up with our journey!
