Become a volunteer today and make a meaningful difference in the lives of children across our city. Connect4Literacy.org is Houston’s go-to website to volunteer with more than 30 literacy organizations – libraries, school districts and nonprofit organizations. 



Research has shown that one single book is available for every 300 children in low-income areas, as opposed to 13 books, on average, in homes of middle-and-high income children. Unfortunately, books are a luxury that many families cannot afford, yet they are essential to a child's development. Make a donation to support our effort to build home libraries for disadvantaged children in our community. With your generous, tax-deductible gift children across Houston will be given the opportunity to bring books into their homes and to develop a life-long passion for reading.
