Research shows that when children have access to books in their home and choice in what books they read, they read more often and achieve at higher academic levels. Through My Home Library, children are able to choose what to read and read what they love. Through the My Home Library program, members of the community can sponsor a child’s home library of six books with a $30 tax-deductible donation. Home library sponsorships can also be underwritten for an entire classroom, grade level, or school. In addition, contributions may be made without a minimum or maximum amount. 

“If you help a person to read, then their opportunities in life will be endless.”

- First Lady Barbara Bush

In 2013 Neil and Maria Bush formed the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation to carry forth their mother’s legacy and focus deeply on the literacy cause in the Bush family’s hometown and the nation’s 4th largest, most diverse city. The Foundation is dedicated to improving the quality of life for all Houstonians through the power of literacy and the breaking of the intergenerational cycle of low literacy.
