On Friday, June 10th, The Honorable Rodney Ellis, Harris County Precinct 1 Commissioner, Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation, the Foundation’s Young Professionals Group (YPG), Julia C. Hester House and the Fifth Ward Community Redevelopment Corporation gathered in celebration of their NeighborWorks Week.

They all participated in building 14 Little Free Libraries, or Barbara’s Book Boxes, in the 5th Ward neighborhood. The Barbara’s Book Boxes project, an initiative of the Foundation’s YPG, aims to increase access of underserved children and their families with books to read, love and share. The small boxes are stocked with books and placed in public locations for residents to have easy and free access to “take a book, leave a book.”

These little libraries serve as a unifying and educational resource for recipients of all ages. The boxes were provided through a generous donation from Oxy and MD Anderson Cancer Center.
