My Home Library- Big Awesome Book Sort Friday, October 26th

Grab your friends on Friday, October 26th to volunteer your time to help set up for our My Home Library book sort event. This will be our biggest book sort ever – come be a part of sorting new books for over 4,500 children!


My Home Library is an initiative of the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation aimed at providing more children access to books in the home. Children log onto the My Home Library website to create a wish list of six books to build their home library. Then, members of the community sponsor a child's library.


During this event, volunteers will sort and bag nearly 30,000 books selected by children in nine Houston area schools --De Zavala Elementary, Tijerina Elementary, Franklin Elementary, Treasure Forest Elementary, Kennedy Elementary, Hollibrook Elementary, Royalwood Elementary, Briscoe Elementary, and Gallegos Elementary through the Foundations’ My Home Library initiative.


This event will be located at the Region 4 Education Service Center, 7200 Northwest 100 Dr, Houston, TX 77092. Due to capacity restrictions at our event, participation requires registration; walk in volunteers will not be accepted.



Youth ages 16-18 are welcome to participate (limit of 25 volunteers age 16-18 per shift). All volunteers under the age of 18 will need to bring a volunteer liability waiver to the event, signed by their parent or guardian. This waiver can be found at this link.
