My Home Library
In partnership with the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation, My Home Library allows every student at an elementary school to select six books to take home and keep to begin building their Home Library.
The books are absolutely free to the students, but for a school to participate, it needs one or more sponsors, that's where you come in!
The Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation (BBHLF) has found that, "when childrean have access to books in tehir home, and have choice in selecting books, research clearly shows a higher probability that they will read more frequently and achieve at higher levels academically.
Unfortunately, books are a luxury that many families cannot afford, yet they are essential to a child's development."
