In 2017, The Houston Library Foundation started a partnership with the Houston Astros Foundation. In the last Spring, the Astros Foundation reached out to the Library with the idea of a literacy bus, and, since then communications with their team have been synergistic.
Recently, the Astros Literacy Bus made stops at several Houston library locations. To commemorate the last day of Camp STREAM, the Literacy Bus distributed books to young people at the Carnegie Library. Astros player, Tyler White, made a surprise appearance. He took the time to read to the group and gave out books to every child in attendance.
We are honored to partner with the Astros Foundation and we look forward to more successful collaborations.
