Come help kickoff Houston's 2021 Literacy in the Bag! 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.

Generation SERVE volunteers will help set up EZ up tents, tables, chairs, will greet people at the gate, give them information, help people navigate the event, help vendors throughout with activities, help with games and story time, as well as help tear down after the event ends.

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