Annual Community Book Drive

The Ladies for Literacy Guild in partnership with the Houston Rockets Women’s Organization, Reliant, and Harris County Public Library will be hosting our 3rd Annual Community Book Drive to stock our Curiosity Cruiser and place books in the hands of children in need. As part of this citywide event that is held during the month of March (National Literacy Awareness Month), Northwest Branch Library is collecting new children’s, young adult, and adult books. These books will be distributed to families in need through the Curiosity Cruiser or our literacy partner organizations. 61 percent of low-income children are not book owners, however research shows that access to books in the home is a more important factor influencing reading achievement levels than parent education level and socioeconomic status. We need your help building home libraries and bringing the power of literacy to families across Harris County. Donate today.
