This activity is for all ages. 

Join the Literacy in the Bag Team to collect books for their annual book drive and community outreach to promote literacy in Houston children and adults. The Generation SERVE Literacy in the Bag Team will meet at the Ring Neighborhood Houston Public Library, where we will be given routes to drop off bags in the neighborhood to collect books for the holiday book drive. This will be a walking route.

Each year, Literacy in the Bag redistributes donated children’s books to Houston and surrounding-area Title I Elementary and Middle Schools. These books help stock school libraries, classrooms and create at-home libraries for students. All adult books are donated to Friends of the Houston Public Library.

Literacy in the Bag is a nonprofit organization supported by Texas Tamale Company, iWrite Literacy Organization and the Houston Public Library.
