There’s a new effort to bridge what some call the “book gap” and it’s putting books in the hands of hundreds of children in Houston. On a recent morning, dozens of kids crammed inside their school library at Browning Elementary School. They were excited because they were getting their very own library to take home. It’s a pilot project, called My Home Library, from the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation. To start, it distributed mini-libraries to more than 500 children.
