There’s a new effort to bridge what some call the “book gap” and it’s putting books in the hands – and homes – of hundreds of children in Houston. It’s a pilot project, called My Home Library, from the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation. To start, it distributed mini-libraries to over 500 children. The $30 cost was paid for by volunteers and subsidized by corporate sponsors. Three more schools are expected to join the “My Home Library” program later this year.
